The 2079 Atlantic hurricane season was an active Atlantic hurricane season, with 29 depressions, 26 storms, a record tying 15 hurricanes, and a record 11 major hurricanes forming. It was the third most active season in terms of named storms, after the 2005 season and the 2067 season.
The following storm names were used to name tropical and subtropical cyclones in the 2079 season. This is the same list used in the 2067 season (a different list was used in 2073), except for Allyson, Gloria, Jason, May, Noah, and Tyra, which replaced Ana, Grace, Josh, Molly, Nelson, and Tatum, respectively. Storms were named Allyson, Jason, May, Noah, and Tyra for the first time in 2079 (the name Gloria was previously used in 1975, 1979 and 1985).
In the spring of 2080, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) retired the names Allyson, Coral, Henry, Jason, Liam, Noah, Santos, and Vern. They were replaced with Aletta, Charity, Herb, Jackson, Leevy, Norman, Sebastian, and Valentine, respectively. The eight (8) names retired this season represents a new record, breaking the record of six (6) set in the 2067 season. In addition, the names Coral and Jason marked only the second and third times in history a tropical storm had its name retired, after Allison in 2001. Vern was the first 'V' storm to get its name retired.
