BALTIMORE (WBFF) - The 2020 Atlantic Hurricane season officially ends November 30th and after a record setting season, we're down to tracking one area of concern. 

So far this season, we've seen 30 named storms, 13 hurricanes, and 6 major hurricanes.

2005 was the only other season on record that used Greek alphabet names. 2020 has gone the furthest into the Greek alphabet for named storms. 

In mid November, Hurricane Iota became the first Category 5 hurricane in the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season. It is the strongest hurricane of the year, as well as the latest category 5 hurricane on record to form this late in the year.

Right now we're just monitoring a non-tropical area of low pressure in the Atlantic, northeast of the Bahamas. This system could briefly develop subtropical characteristics before a cold front pushes it northeastward by the middle of next week.
