Iota became the 31st storm of the Atlantic hurricane season. Above is a preliminary graphic by the NHC that shows all the storms that has formed in the Atlantic during the 2020 hurricane season up to Zeta. Again, the graphic is preliminary and will likely be updated at a later date. The 2020 hurricane season has passed the 2005 hurricane season for the most recorded storms on record. That also means 2020 has passed 2005 for how many Greek Alphabet names were used. In 2005 only 6 storms were named after the Greek Alphabet.

So far this year we are approaching the halfway point of the Greek Alphabet with 9 Greek Alphabet named storms. Iota is not crossed off on the Graphic above because it just formed today. So this means so far we have passed the 2005 season by 3 Greek Alphabet named storms.

Here is a look at the Atlantic storm tracks from 2005.
