2018 Hurricane Season Names: Is Yours on the List?

Another hurricane season is underway. The Atlantic basin hurricane season officially begins June 1, and ends November 30.

Although tropical storms and hurricanes can develop before or after the season, most of the time, storms are confined to the official season. This year got off to an early start as  Subtropical Storm Alberto developed last Friday and dissipated on Tuesday.

The names are on a list that rotates every six years. This year’s list will repeat in 2024. Storm names that are retired because of their strength or devastation, are replaced with a new name on the list. Names are determined by the World Meteorological Organization, which is part of the United Nations.
