Even though hurricane season officially ends at the end of November. No development is expected and we should end this very active hurricane season ending on the “T” storm, as Tropical Storm Tony was our last storm to be named.
However, with our season winding down, other parts of the world are beginning their tropical seasons. Case in point, the Southern Indian Ocean where Tropical Storm Boldwin has developed. Boldwin is not expected to impact any land masses, but there is some great satellite imagery of this system. Since Boldwin is in the Southern Hemisphere, you will notice that it has clockwise cyclonic flow, which is something that we are not use to seeing in the Northern Hemisphere. Boldwin is moving southwest at 8 knots and it will also continue to move off to the south and west towards the south pole. Maximum sustained winds are 45 knots (approx. 50 mph) and gusting to 55 knots (63 mph).
