Top 5 weather events of 2020 in South Texas
Here’s a look at the KSAT Weather Team’s list of the top 5 weather events of 2020:Number 5In June, a far away visitor that really seemed to capture the imagination of South Texans was the Saharan dust cloud. There was hope that hot weather might help keep COVID-19 at bay, but cases ramped up again in July. While weather may play a small role in how COVID-19 spreads, hot, dry weather did not seem to have much effect. A record number of named storms and a record number of landfalling storms were recorded in 2020. Three of the named storms brought impacts to Texas.
Winds and rain whip Yucatan resorts as Hurricane Zeta nears
Clouds gather over Playa Gaviota Azul as Tropical Storm Zeta approaches Cancun, Mexico, early Monday morning, Oct. 26, 2020. (AP Photo/Victor Ruiz Garcia)MIAMI – Hurricane Zeta lashed Mexico's Caribbean coast resorts around Tulum with high winds and rain Monday night as it headed toward the Yucatan Peninsula and then a possible landfall on the central U.S. Gulf Coast at midweek. It was the second time this month that boat captain Francisco Sosa Rosado had to perform the same maneuver, after Hurricane Delta hit the resort in early October. Trees felled by Hurricane Delta barely three weeks earlier still littered parts of Cancun, stacked along roadsides and in parks. There was also a Tropical Storm Zeta in 2005, but that year had 28 storms because meteorologists later went back and found they missed one, which then became an “unnamed named storm."

Can we retire a Greek hurricane name? Delta made us wonder.
Louisiana residents who are still recovering from the devastation of a powerful hurricane less than two months ago braced for another hit as Hurricane Delta steamed north through the Gulf on Thursday after swiping Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, the Associated Press reported. “They do not retire Greek alphabet storm names -- at least so far,” Gross said. The last time we went through all the letters of the alphabet and moved on to the Greek alphabet was 2005. In 2005, a record-breaking year of devastating hurricanes, we made it through six Greek letters. The Committee also agreed that it was not practical to retire into hurricane history a letter in the Greek alphabet.

What happens when we run out of names for tropical storms?
Hurricanes - and weaker tropical storms - are given names such as “Alice,” “Charlie" and “Sally." In the Atlantic Basin, these are the names that are assigned for tropical storms and hurricanes in 2020. This has been a very active year for tropical storms and hurricanes in the Atlantic Basin. This is the list of "names" tropical storms would be given when we run out of alphabetical names originally assigned to 2020. Eventually, Tropical Storm Zeta was the last storm to develop on December 30, making for six named storms reaching into the Greek alphabet.

When it comes to storms and protecting your home, err on the side of caution: We’ll tell you how

You could even turn this into a project, moving just a few belongings a day, leading up to the storm.

NOAA predicts an active Atlantic hurricane season
NOAA, or the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration, put out its hurricane forecast on Thursday. It is important to note, however, that while NOAAs prediction calls for for an increase in seasonal activity, it is NOT a landfall forecast. 2020 Hurricane season predictionsFactors for the increase:Part of what happens in the Atlantic Ocean depends on the Pacific Ocean. In La Nina years, shearing winds tend to be lighter over the Atlantic, helping storms to better organize. In addition, warmer-than-average sea-surface temperatures, weaker tropical Atlantic trade winds and an enhanced west African monsoon may contribute to higher numbers.
In an especially active hurricane season, could we run out of names?
After all the years of recorded named storms, one has to wonder: What happens when we run out of names? The World Meteorological Organization came up with a six-year rotating list of names for hurricanes, Gross said. Now we arrive at our initial question: What happens when we run out of names? So, lets say we have a storm named Walter. The first and last instance in which the Greek alphabet was needed was in 2005, during the busiest hurricane season on record, when there were 28 named storms.
