This year has been full of extremes not only just in our every day lives, but also in the weather. By now you've probably heard of how this year's hurricane season is breaking records in more ways than one; but now, the biggest record of them all is now claimed by the 2020 season.

With the formation of subtropical Theta, we're now at 29 named storms for the season. The previous record of 28 was set back in 2005.

During that season, there were three named storms in November and one in late December! 

Now that doesn't mean we'll likely do the same, but the way this season has been going I wouldn't be surprised if we were to see a few more names marked off the list.

The good news is that we typically see hurricanes develop and track further east of the United States during the month of November. Keep in mind this is just an average, but we usually see storms kick out further east the in the Atlantic compared to earlier in the season.

Hopefully if we do see anymore storms develop they'll steer clear of the U.S. since we've all seen our fair share of storms for this year, especially along the Gulf Coast.
