Tropical Storm Wanda — the 21st of the Season

Once again, running out the alphabet.

“Wanda becomes tropical storm over open Atlantic”

It is not about the size of Wanda or the location of Wanda, but the fact that it is the 21st named storm of the 2021 storm season.

The hurricane season extends from June 1 through Nov. 30. That means we have another 28 more days of possible storms yet to come in this hurricane season.

Another impact of global warming that I think will happen is that the hurricane season will begin earlier and end later. Maybe in 30 more years there won’t be a “season” since the storms might happen at any time of the year.

Let me know how that prediction turns out, please.
