Tropical storm Cindy, third named storm of season forms far from land

Share

The third named storm of the Atlantic tropical storm and hurricane season has formed in the mid-Atlantic but poses no threat to the U.S. coastline. Tropical storm Cindy formed yesterday and is heading away from the U.S., travelling northeast into the open Atlantic where it will only be a threat to shipping interests should it intensify.

Currently carrying sustained winds of 50mph Cindy is expected to become slightly stronger before weakening as the storm becomes extratropical.

So, three tropical storms down and no threat of landfall, could the season be heading the same way as last year?
