Tropical Storm Karen headed for the U.S., T.D. 14 becomes Tropical Storm Melissa, T.D. 14-E forms

Tropical Storm Karen’s latest track has it headed for the U.S. as a minor tropical storm. One model has Karen off New England as a hurricane. T.D. 14-E formed in the East Pacific as T.D. 14L in the Atlantic became Melissa. Talk about a coincidence.

Lorenzo dissipates, Karen barely a tropical storm, Melissa to form tomorrow?

The final advisory on Tropical Depression Lorenzo was issued this evening at 5:00. Also Karen is down to 40 mph, but there is some bad news: Karen’s projected path takes it toward the United States by 4 to 5 days. Also, T.D. 14 has formed off of Africa and is expected to become Tropical Storm Melissa tomorrow.
