If it were to become a tropical storm, it'll get the name Jose. It, like many of the storms that came before it, would be the earliest 10th named storm in recorded history in the Atlantic basin. The previous record for the earliest 9th storm has yet to pass as well, continuing the rapid pace of storms that this season has been on since the beginning of June.
Today also marks the one year anniversary of Hurricane Charley making landfall in Southwest Florida. Charley is the second costliest hurricane on record in the United States (unadjusted figures), having resulted in over $15 billion dollars in damage. Hurricane Andrew of 1992 remains in the topspot at near $30 billion dollars. Charley's name was retired, and rightfully so considering the damage it caused. Next time around, it'll be Colin in it's place.
