The 1955 season was active, with twelve tropical storms forming.
The second Hurricane Alice of 1954 was originally believed to have developed in early January of 1955 and thus have been the first storm of the 1955 season; however, it was later discovered to have developed in late December of 1954 and was reclassified as a storm of the 1954 season.
