The 2020 Atlantic basin hurricane season was one of the most active on record. 2020 had 30 Atlantic named storms, breaking the old record of 28 set in 2005. As was the scenario in 2005, this season’s storm activity pushed the naming of storms into the Greek alphabet after the customary alphabetical named storm list was exhausted, thus resulting in named storms Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon, Zeta, Eta, Theta and Iota. 2020 also had 13 Atlantic hurricanes, the 2nd-most on record, trailing only 2005 which had 15. The research team at Colorado State University’s Tropical Meteorology Project correctly predicted that the 2020 season would be very active.
