Hurricane ‘Alex’ is in the Atlantic
I don't know about just how warm our globe is getting but we have some mighty strange weather going on in the North Atlantic. In case you think you may have misread the headline, yes, there is a hurricane in the North Atlantic as we speak.
It's not the first time we have seen a hurricane in the Atlantic during the winter months. Back in 1954, Hurricane Alice developed in the Caribbean in December 1954 - January of 1955 with winds of 90 mph as it moved from the Caribbean into the open Atlantic.
The storm is currently approaching the Azores, a chain of islands in the North Atlantic and the track for Alex shows the storm becoming extratropical as it approaches Greenland within the next few days. Satellite images show a distinct eye feature with multiple bands wrapping around the center. Winds are estimated to be near 85 mph
