The hurricane season of 2020 has been extreme and record-breaking. So far there have been 23 storms and all of the traditional hurricane names have been used and now the Greek alphabet is being used. Express.co.uk has compiled an array of shocking maps to show where the active and burgeoning twisters are churning right now.

Hurricane Teddy is the most severe hurricane whirling in the western Atlantic coast right now.

The large hurricane is forecast to unleash dangerous rip currents across the western Atlantic beaches for several days and is currently heading north.

The storm is located around 195 miles south southeast of Bermuda and packing winds of 105mph, making it a Category 2 hurricane according to the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

Teddy is moving at six mph and is expected to continue this motion generally through Tuesday evening, followed by a turn towards the northeast on Wedneaday.

The twister will pass east of Bermuda on Monday before approaching Nova Scotia late on Tuesday or by early Wednesday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles from the centre and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 230 miles.

Currently, there is a tropical storm warning in effect for Bermuda and tropical storm watch in force for the lower east Pubnico to Main-a-Dieu in Nova Scotia.

Tropical Storm Beta expected to produce tropical storm conditions over portions of the Texas coast later on Monday morning.

As of 1am CDT (7am BST) on Monday, the storm was located around 115 miles southeast of Galveston, Texas, and 110 miles east southeast of Port O’Connor, Texas.

A storm surge warning is in effect for Port Aransas, Texas to Rockefeller Wildlife Refuge, Louisiana, including Copano Bay, Aransas Bay, San Antonio Bay, Matagorda Bay, Galveston Bay, Sabine Lake, and Lake Calcasieu.

A Tropical Storm warning is in force for Port Aransas in Texas to Moran City in Louisiana.

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Baffin Bay to Port Aransas in Texas.

Beta is moving toward the west northwest at around 6mph and this motion is predicted to continue for the next day or so.

A decrease in forward speed and a sharp turn to the north and northeast is anticipated on Monday night and Tuesday.

Beta is likely to move towards the central coast of Texas and will likely move inward by Monday night.

Maximum sustained winds are currently near 60mph with higher justs and little change is expected before Beta reaches Texas.

Tropical storm force winds currently extend outward up to 195 miles from the centre.

There is also a tropical disturbance churning right now.

The National Hurricane Center is tracking a post-tropical cyclone Paulette located around a few hundred miles south of the Azores and continues to produce a few showers.

This system is drifting southward over marginally warm waters and is expected to begin moving eastward in a couple of days.

The cyclone could develop tropical or subtropical characteristics during the next day or two.

There is a 60 percent chance of formation through the next 48 hours or five days.
