Tropical Storm Lisa Forms; Not a Threat to You

Tropical Storm Lisa formed this morning from what was Tropical Depression 13 in the far eastern Atlantic, about 450 west of the Cape Verde Islands.  As of 11am Tuesday, it’s a minimal tropical storm with 40 mph winds, located at 15.3N, 30.4W and moving NW at 12 mph.

The National Hurricane Center’s forecast track moves Lisa into the central Atlantic over the next few days.  It may strengthen before fizzling out over the water late this week.

Lisa, the 12th named storm of the 2016 Atlantic hurricane season, joins Tropical Storm Karl in the Atlantic basin.


Neither storm is a threat to you…or, as it appears right now, to any land.
