June 1 marks the official start of the hurricane season. At the same time, a storm, which may develop into the third named storm of the year, is starting to churn.
It had been named Tropical Storm Amanda when it developed in the Pacific but had dissipated. It is now in the Atlantic Ocean basin, hence the potential name of Cristobal, CNN reported.
There have already been two named storms that developed in May before the official start of the season, WTVJ reported.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said 2020 will be an above-normal year with between 13 and 19 named storms, six to 10 will be hurricanes and three to six will be major hurricanes with at least 111 mph winds.
Hurricane season runs until Nov. 30.
