Subtropical Storm Fay Doesn’t Pose Threat to Gulf as Slowest Storm Season in Over 30 Years Continues
A slow hurricane season certainly does not break my heart. Anybody's else's heart getting broken by a slow hurricane season? Not us. Maybe Jim Cantore. He seems to like to travel.
Even as meteorologists slightly upgraded the Atlantic's most recent tropical depression into a named storm, it doesn't look like much is going to change for us, storm-wise, in the recent future.
Subtropical Storm Fay, as she's being called (and do we really need 'subtropical storms?') is expected to bounce off Bermuda and veer off into the deep Atlantic, not causing major problems for anyone but a few sailors, I expect.
Fay is only the sixth named storm of the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane season, which marks this year as the slowest season for storms since 1983. I don't know about you guys, but that's a streak I can believe in.
