According to the National Hurricane Center at NOAA, tropical storm JOVA has just formed out of Tropical Depression Ten-E out in the Eastern Pacific, right now they are forecasting that it might hit the Hawaiian Islands. At the time of this writing there is also Tropical Depression eleven-E just a little bit east of JOVA. Also in the Atlantic OPHELIA is still heading north along the east coast of the US, and there is just north of Brazil a area that they are saying has a possible tropical cyclone formation in the next 36 to 48 hours, probably another tropical wave right now.
Hum I seem to have a bit of a unhealthy obsession with these tropical storms, I just find them fascinating, and kind of fun to follow. So far this has been a very active season, and we still have about 2 maybe 2 1/2 months left in the season, maybe we will hit tropical storm Alpha from what I have read if they run out of names (The last name in the list this year is Wilma) that they will go to the international phonetic alphabet.
In the event that more than 21 named tropical cyclones occur in the Atlantic basin in a season, additional storms will take names from the Greek alphabet: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, and so on.
