The updated outlook calls for 19-25 named storms (winds of 39 mph or greater), of which 7-11 will become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or greater), including 3-6 major hurricanes (winds of 111 mph or greater). This update covers the entire six-month hurricane season, which ends Nov. 30, and includes the nine named storms to date.

If it goes to 25, they will fill in with Greek letters. There are only 21 names on the standard list with no names for the letters: Q,U,X,Y, or Z. After Wilfred will be Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta. In 2005 there were 27 names storms that went from Arlene to Zeta and included Katrina.
