We'll stop taking entries after Invest 91 is named, Seems fair enough. Should be in the next 24-48 hours.

Hi Fiona. I think you forgot to change the last one to "Yes". If you are going for highest wind speed of 161mph then that would mean Cat 5.

Emily named so presumably closed?

She is forecast to be a hurricane before hitting Florida at the moment.

Is it time to count up the scores now?
Turned out to be an active season but it didn't seem to have very many strong systems.
