Tropical Storm Leslie

TS Leslie popped up in the Atlantic last night, but should stay there and curve away, as might Michael who could appear next week off the coast of Africa.

From NOAA: THIS IS THE SECOND-EARLIEST FORMATION OF THE 12TH NAMED STORM ON RECORD IN THE ATLANTIC BASIN...ECLIPSED ONLY BY LUIS OF 1995.

Update: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/gtwo_atl.shtml?201208292329

Leslie may become a category 2 hurricane.

Update (8-5): Leslie is a hurricane and may become a cat 2. It's heading north and probably staying away from the east coast.

Update (8-6): Leslie missed Bermuda and may be headed for Nova Scotia.
