About two weeks ago, the NHC completed their first TCR of the 2020 season, and it's for One-E. No changes were made to the intensity of the storm, but the advisory timing was changed; NHC operationally declared it at 1500 UTC on the 25th, but reanalysis suggests it was a depression at 0600 UTC that day. Ryan1000 04:10, July 13, 2020 (UTC)

Over two and a half months later, the second TCR of the season has been completed (actually completed on September 10th, but only published today), this time for Amanda. Again, no changes to the intensity, but instead to the timing. Operationally declared as a TD at 2100 UTC on May 30th, but reanalysis suggests it became one at 1800 UTC on that same day. She also made landfall earlier, at 1000 URC on the 31st compared to 1200 UTC operationally, and peaked 3 hours earlier, 0600 UTC compared to 0900 UTC operationally. Nutfield001 (talk) 19:21, September 18, 2020 (UTC)

Elida's TCR is out, four days after it was completed. Adjustments have been made to her formation time, having actually formed at 1800 UTC on August 8th, in comparison to 0300 UTC on August 9th operationally, and most notably her intensity, with reanalysis suggesting she was a 105mph hurricane with a central pressure reading of 971mb, not 100mph and 975mb as was originally thought. Nutfield001 (talk) 02:01, October 28, 2020 (UTC)

Also, the TCR says it dissipated on the 12th, not the 13th. Ryan1000 15:37, October 28, 2020 (UTC)

Cristina's TCR is out, albeit completed a week ago. No intensity upgrade, sadly, plus it became a low on the 12th July, not the 13th. Nutfield001 (talk) 22:59, November 20, 2020 (UTC)

Douglas's TCR was completed a few days ago but released today. No change in windspeed or pressure but lifespan was shortened.  ~ Roy25   Talk | Contributions   21:16, December 01, 2020 (UTC) 

Lowell's TCR has been released having only been completed yesterday. No changes to the duration or its windspeed but its pressure is up by 2 mb. Nutfield001 (talk) 22:21, December 3, 2020 (UTC)

Seven-E's TCR has een released and was upgraded to an unnamed tropical storm. So we have Tropical Storm Seven-E.  ~ Roy25   Talk | Contributions   15:01, December 11, 2020 (UTC) 

Interesting...not every day a tropical depression gets buffed to a TS in reanalysis, the last time that happened in the EPac was, I believe, tropical storm one-e in 1996. Ryan1000 16:00, December 11, 2020 (UTC)

TCRs for Six-E and Ten-E are out with no change for both depressions, although Six-E's was completed on December 20 while Ten-E's was completed on January 4.  ~ Roy25   Talk | Contributions   23:39, January 07, 2021 (UTC) 

Julio's TCR is out (completed on Jan 20). Only change was the increase of pressure by 1 mbar.  ~ Roy25   Talk | Contributions   21:07, January 22, 2021 (UTC) 

Iselle's TCR is out. Not that much change in it. The TCR was completed yesterday.  ~ Roy25   Talk | Contributions   15:01, February 02, 2021 (UTC) 
Boris' TCR is posted on the web, although it was completed on Jan 13. Duration was shortened but overall, not that much change.  ~ Roy25   Talk | Contributions   15:00, February 03, 2021 (UTC) 

Fausto and Karina's TCRs are out. Fausto's was completed today and not too much change. Karina's was completed on January 29 and its time frame was shifted.  ~ Roy25   Talk | Contributions   17:46, February 10, 2021 (UTC) 

Marie's TCR is out, which was completed yesterday. Changes includes an increase of maximum wind speed to 140 mph, a drop of minimum pressure to 945 mbars, and duration was shortened.  ~ Roy25   Talk | Contributions   15:43, February 19, 2021 (UTC) 
Polo's TCR is out and completed today. No significant change to duration and intensity.  ~ Roy25   Talk | Contributions   23:42, March 17, 2021 (UTC) 
Hernan's TCR is out, completed yesterday. Also not that much change to duration and intensity. Four-E's TCR is also out with with its duration extended to the 29th, maximum wind speed downgraded to 30 mph, and pressure up to 1006 mbars. Norbert's TCR is also out with changes to duration during both stages as TC. Max wind speed has been upped to 60 mph and pressure changed to 1000 mbars ~ Roy25   Talk | Contributions   20:35, March 18, 2021 (UTC) 

Guess that leaves just Genevieve and Odalys for the 2020 EPac TCR’s. I predicted genny would be last, and considering it was the only named storm (besides Amanda, whose TCR was finished a while back) to cause any impact on land this year, it probably will come out after Odalys. Ryan1000 21:49, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

The final two TCRs of the 2020 EPAC season - Genevieve and Odalys - are out, both completed yesterday. No significant changes to Genevieve while Odalys was found to dissipated earlier.  ~ Roy25   Talk | Contributions   14:19, April 14, 2021 (UTC)
