After an extraordinarily busy time that brought multiple named tropical cyclones to the Atlantic hurricane basin, the Atlantic will be taking a breather for now. Beta and Teddy are now post-tropical cyclones bringing lingering rain and wind to their impact areas. What’s left of Beta continues to soak Texas and Louisiana while Teddy is bringing wind-whipped rains to Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland.
Teddy and Beta will continue to lose their tropical cyclone characteristics and weaken tonight into tomorrow, bringing an end to the advisories issued for both from the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida.
The end of Teddy and Beta will also be the beginning of a quiet period in the Atlantic Hurricane Basin. At this time, there are no other disturbances that the National Hurricane Center is monitoring for development. In addition, the National Hurricane Center expects no tropical cyclone formation anywhere in the basin within the next five days according to today’s Tropical Outlook.
The record-breaking 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season runs through to the end of November. No season before has had so many storms to this date on record. The official storm list was exhausted by Wilfred last week, forcing the National Hurricane Center to use letters from the Greek alphabet as a back-up. To date, they’ve issued advisories for Alpha and Beta; the next tropical storm to form would be named Gamma.
