2021 hurricane season outlook
The 2021 Atlantic hurricane season is projected to produce more than average storms. The reason for this is the lack of La Niña, which is usually characterized by more wind shear. We also expect warmer than average sea temperatures and a lively West African monsoon.
After the record 2020 hurricane season, it was found that Greek letters were no longer used in the names of storms.
The World Meteorological Organization has announced that the Greek letters will not be used in the future as they “distract attention from the transmission of danger and storm warnings and can cause confusion.”
There was only one other season with an additional set of names, which was 2005. The World Meteorological Organization has released a new set of supplementary names that will be used if the season runs out of standard lists.
