NWS said: “Because 2020, we now have Zombie Tropical Storms. Welcome back to the land of the living, Tropical Storm #Paulette”
- Paulette hit Bermuda as a Category 1 storm and then became a Category 2 on Sept. 14. The storm lost speed and become “a post-tropical low-pressure system,” according to CNN.
- Now, Paulette regained strength and became a tropical storm again.
The Washington Post reported at the time that 2020 had a rather busy storm system:
- “The jam-packed hurricane season has featured the earliest C, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P and R storms on record, with four names left on the 2020 list before we revert to the Greek alphabet in assigning tropical storm and hurricane names. A typical season contains closer to 11 tropical named storms.”
