FUN FACT: Should Humberto become a hurricane again in 2019, he will have the record for the most times (5) as a hurricane (with a perfect record) since the name went into usage in the 90s.

Do you think he can make it?

In the Pacific, the name "Kenneth" is perhaps very striking imho as ever since its debut in the early 1990s, Kenneth has always been a Category 4 hurricane (4 times in total). So, talk about luck in this case!

In the Atlantic, after replacing Hugo, "Humberto" has always been used on a hurricane (never a TS at peak), with the strongest being a Cat 3 in 2019.

However, in terms of first letters, more generically (especially in the Atlantic) the D, I, and M storms seem to have a tendency to be the nasty and powerful ones.

Until 2020 W was the strongest letter.
Only Wilma existed before Wilfred came along and Wilma was (as you all know) the most powerful hurricane in the Atlantic,

Ironically, Wilfred was one of the weakest storms to have existed (40mph/1007mb). But the average W storm is still a cat 3 with 113 mph winds.

V’s average is a 63mph TS

T is a 86mph cat 1

S is a 82 mph cat 1

R is a 95 mph cat 1/2
