Get ready, Florida! It’s 2021, and we’re just a little over three months away from the Atlantic Hurricane Season.
The National Hurricane Center has been naming the storms since 1953. Eventually, that has been taken over by the World Meteorological Society (WMS). Originally, only women’s names were used, but in 1979, men’s names were added. The names do get recycled every 6 years. However, named storms that are deadly or costly may have their names retired by the WMC.
As we’ve seen in a couple of hurricane seasons, if there are more named storms than there are names on the list, the storms will be named from the Greek alphabet.
For 2021, here is the list of names:
