A little water trivia today.

Wilfred will be the last named Atlantic hurricane of 2020 given to the low pressure system off the coast of West Africa IF it develops into a cyclone.

If that happens, the Atlantic region will name any subsequent 2020 hurricanes with letters of the Greek alphabet, only the second time since naming hurricanes began in 1953.

The World Meteorological Association (WMO) designates twenty-one tropical storm names for a particular region every year. So far this year, the Atlantic region spawned 20 storms.
