February 22, 2021 – With just about 100 days away from the start of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season, the World Meteorological Association released the official storm name list for this year:

  • Ana
  • Bill
  • Claudette
  • Danny
  • Elsa
  • Fred
  • Grace
  • Henri
  • Ida
  • Julian
  • Kate
  • Larry
  • Mindy
  • Nicholas
  • Odette
  • Peter
  • Rose
  • Sam
  • Teresa
  • Victor
  • Wanda

Since 1953, Atlantic tropical storms had been named from lists originated by the National Hurricane Center. They are now maintained and updated through a strict procedure by an international committee of the World Meteorological Organization.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30 and every six years the name repeat unless a storm name is retired.  The 2021 storm name list is identical to the same list in 2015. In the event more than twenty-one named storms occur in the Atlantic, additional storms will take names from the Greek alphabet.

Researchers at Colorado State University haven’t yet put exact numbers to their 2021 Atlantic hurricane season predictions. However, the pre-season forecast released on December 9, 2020 by Tropical Storm Risk (TSR) is predicting an above normal North Atlantic hurricane season for 2021.
