Tropical Storm Lisa forms in eastern Atlantic

Tropical Storm Lisa forms in eastern Atlantic

According to the Bermuda Weather Service, Tropical Storm Karl was a "potential threat" to the islands.

This is the first named storm in the Atlantic since June.

In a typical season we see 12 named storms in the Atlantic, but with Lisa's formation today we all but guarantee an above average year. When winds reach 74 miles per hour, it becomes a hurricane.

The National Weather Service's five-day storm track puts the path of the storm going west-northwest, but conditions can change rapidly, and this storm is in its infancy.

Former tropical storm Julia weakened into a remnant low on Sunday, the National Hurricane Center said in its latest advisory. In the Atlantic Basin, Tropical Depression Julia is located about 160 nautical miles east southeast of Charleston, S.C., with maximum wind speeds at 30 mph (25 kts).

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles from the center. The hurricane center had thought Karl would begin to intensify starting on Monday, but instead Karl remained a disorganized storm.

The system is “not a threat at this time”, according to the BWS.

Forecasters said shear and drier air will result in steady weakening.

Still, the USA has felt the impacts of recently passed Julia and is expected to being seeing Karl's ripple effect during the coming weekend with stirred up surf along the Atlantic beaches. That moisture will produce scattered tropical downpours over Houston this weekend.
