GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The entire 21 name list of the 2020 hurricane season has officially been exhausted. 23 named storms have been recorded in the Atlantic basin so far this year.

Tropical Depression Beta

Beta has become a remnant system, much like Sally, and will drag tropical moisture across the Southeast the next few days. Winds will continue to weaken, but heavy downpours and the flooding potential will be possible Wednesday and Thursday. By the time the system works into ENC, a lot of the moisture will be left behind but a total rainfall around 1.00″ could come through this weekend.

Post-Tropical Teddy

The system is moving to the northwest and will continue on this track over the next day or so. It has transitioned from a tropical cyclone to a mid-latitude cyclone. Impacts will be highest in Canada where soaking rains, strong winds and high surf will be possible.

Post-Tropical Paulette

It’s the tropical storm that just won’t quit. Paulette originally formed September 7th, made landfall as a category 2 hurricane in Bermuda on September 14th and dropped down to an extra-tropical low on September 16th. While the circulation of Paulette was broad on weak over the last several days, it found its way back over warm water which encouraged redevelopment. It is now post-tropical again and will hopefully not make another run at tropical status.
