  1. Named Storm: 'Omar'

    Tropical Storm Omar developed over the past several days from a low pressure area in the eastern Caribbean south of Jamaica, Haiti and Puerto Rico. This storm is being steered by upper level currents that will place it in a northeasterly direction by October 8-10. There is a good chance that this storm will make Hurricane status but it will be an Atlantic Ocean storm and will not affect any significant land mass for at least 7 to 10 days. It will be moving toward Europe in approximately 10 days.

    Unless this storm has an unforeseen direction change, this will be our only Named Storm Omar posting.
