The Eastern Pacific is now in overtime with tropical storm Xavier. They added the X, Y and Z names in 1985 to avoid using Greek letters (something that would eventually happen in the Atlantic 20 year latter).

Well the 2018 East Pacific and Atlantic Hurricane seasons are over. Michael will probably get upgraded to Category 5 in post-analysis. The East Pacific had 3-4 Category 5ís (if Hector gets upped) and 10 Category 4ís!

And with the formation of Tropical Storm* Trevor near the Great Coral Barrier I've now seen tropical storms with the names of all three main characters of GTA V: Michael, Franklin and Trevor. Although the first one is going to be struck off the Atlantic list along with Florence this week.

* Calling this a "Tropical Storm" is technically incorrect since the Australian Bureau of Meteorology doesn't officially use that term. But I do for all tropical cyclones below hurricane strength, regardless of location.

As expected, Florence and Michael have fallen off the Atlantic list and have been replaced with Francine and Milton. This means no original F names are left on the lists. There is exactly one original I name remaining: Isaac. No names have been retired in the Eastern Pacific East of 140įW.

Well, they got my middle name.  I don't think my first name has ever yet been on either of those lists.

They got up to "W" one year, and there was a major storm named Wilma, and at that time I had a coworker by that name.

It was 2005. They ran out of names, so they ended up naming storms after Greek letters instead. There were so many storms, the year actually ended before the last storm dissipated!

After Cyclone Veronica explosively intensified, it appears western AU is under attack again. The GFS model wants not one, not two, but THREE systems to skirt the west coast, with the current one (Invest 97S) making landfall.

And I thought it was impossible for the Atlantic to produce a Cat 5 for more than two years in a row. This has not happened before.

As if the current climate situation has any sort of precedent. :rolleyes:
