The “S” storm has formed

November 8th, 2011 at 12:16 pm by under Weather, WTNH Blogs

The tropical weather season rolls on. Remember, the Atlantic Basin tropical weather season starts June first and goes through the last day of November. Click here for the storm names.

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on recently formed Subtropical Storm Sean. Here is the midday update:

Sean Forecast

Storm Forecast

There will be a weather front approaching Connecticut at the same time Sean moves North. This will help to keep the strongest part of Sean to our East. The Cape and Islands could get some strong winds and very rough weather late Thursday – Friday Morning. Connecticut will likely get wind as it passes by Friday with a few gusts to 35 mph out of the Northwest.

Oh and why is it called Subtropical? It has slightly different characteristics than a typical Tropical Storm. It has colder temperatures above the center higher up in the atmosphere and Subtropical Storms tend to have a wider area of wind further out from the center of circulation. Stay with NEWS8 and for the latest as we track Sean! -Gil

    Gil: The last thing Connecticut needs right now is another storm of any kind. Hopefully, we will miss this one completely.
