Tropical Storm Alpha (disambiguation)
The name Alpha or Alfa has been used for two subtropical cyclones and one tropical storm in the Atlantic Ocean. It was used to name subtropical storms for a time before the modern naming lists were instituted, and is used to name the first storm in excess of the last name on the basin's list (see hurricane naming).
- Subtropical Storm Alpha (1972), pre-season storm that made landfall in Georgia
- Subtropical Storm Alfa (1973), briefly threatened Cape Cod but stayed out to sea
In the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season, the list was exhausted and Alpha was used to name the season's twenty-second tropical storm:
- Tropical Storm Alpha (2005), a moderately strong tropical storm that made landfall in the Dominican Republic, killing forty-three in Hispaniola before being absorbed by Hurricane Wilma; notable as the first storm to be named with the Greek Alphabet in the Atlantic basin
