Alpha dissipated on Friday night after pouring rain over Portugal. Tropical Storm Wilfred was still over the sea but is not expected to make landfall.
A day for the history of hurricanes
September 18, 2020 will go down in the history of hurricanes: three tropical storms formed in the same day, one of them in Portugal, on the other side of the Atlantic, a category 4 hurricane in the middle of the ocean and all the names of cyclones from the 2020 covered list.
After a storm closer to the Cape Verde islands than to the Caribbean took over the last name on the list, Wilfred, storms Alpha, in Portugal, and Beta, in the Gulf of Mexico, entered the scene.
The forecasts said that the 2020 hurricane season in the Atlantic basin was going to be very active and they were not wrong.
There are two months and twelve days to go (November 30) and there have already been 23 named storms.
