ORLANDO, Fla. – We could be checking another name off the Greek Alphabet list.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is watching Tropical Depression 29 as it moves over the central Caribbean Sea.
If the system develops further, it would be named Eta.
Jamaica, Honduras and Nicaragua should monitor the progress of this system. It’s too soon to tell if the system will have any affect on Florida.
Forecasters predicted that this season would be more active than most.
For example, NOAA predicted an above-average season, with 13 to 19 named storms. Six to 10 of those were predicted to become hurricanes and three to six of those were forecasted to become major hurricanes (Category 3 or higher).
In comparison, the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane season had 18 named storms, matching 1969 for the fourth most-lively season in the past 150 years.
Hurricane season runs through Nov. 30.
