The Atlantic hurricane season continues through November 30th. While it has been quiet as far as landfalling storms are concerned, we’re up to our thirteenth tropical depression, which just earned the name Tropical Storm Lorenzo.
Lorenzo is spinning out in the Atlantic just to the east-southeast of Bermuda. Fortunately for the shipping industry – the only ones concerned with this storm – the conditions out there are still not conducive to strong storm formation. Number 13, a.k.a. Lorenzo, won’t be a very lucky storm, and will start to detereorate within a day or two after turning to the northeast. That turn will guarantee that Lorenzo won’t be a threat to the mainland or Bermuda.
