We are being led to believe a tropical storm has formed WAY out in the Atlantic. It’s supposed to fizzle out as fast as it fizzled in.
Given the eco-freaks infesting all manner of offices in the NWS, NOAA, etc. I can’t help but wonder if they’re trying to pad the deck by calling it what 1. 50 years ago we never would have seen as a storm; 2. we never would have called a storm; 3. and now it’s suddenly a storm they can add to their “scare you” list.
Yet here we are watching these clowns trying to convince us they have credibility when they announce useless crap like this.
A weather system morphed into Tropical Storm Arlene on Thursday, becoming the first named storm of the year, the National Hurricane Center said.
As of Friday morning, Arlene had maximum sustained winds of 50 mph and was moving northwest at 28 mph.
The storm is far from land, about 815 miles west of the Azores.
“We are watching what is now Tropical Storm Arlene, which is about 2,000 miles away from Florida and moving away every hour,” News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.
The system is expected to dissipate Friday or Saturday and no coastal watches or warnings are in effect.
