Copyright © 2005 The Weather Underground, Inc.Hurricane Wilma, a category 3 hurricane as of writing, is going to hit landfall (south western Florida) some time at dawn tomorrow. This seems to be the busiest hurricane season on record, and Wilma is the 12th named hurricane of the season.
The next storm is tropical storm Alpha, and it has already killed 5 in Haiti. All the names for the storms in the alphabet has been used so the storms after that are named after the Greek alphabet.
I've been doing some reading on how hurricanes form and this article from USA Today is helpful in that understanding.
