Greek for Weather Watchers

First, Tropical Storm Alpha. Now Beta. Now that we’re into Greek letters for naming the remaining Atlantic tropical cyclones this year, a searing question poses itself: What follows beta in the Greek alphabet? The first two letters are easy enough, and I know what the last one is. And, thanks to the fraternities and sororities of the world, I can name many of the intervening letters. But I can’t put them in order.

To cut to the chase: Gamma follows beta. Then delta and epsilon. And if we get that far: zeta, eta, theta, iota, kappa, lambda, mu, nu, xi, omicron, pi, rho, sigma, tau, upsilon, phi, chi, psi, omega.
