Tropical Storm Delta is just barely under hurricane strength and churning in the mid-Atlantic Ocean, but is not expected to be any threat to land, only shipping concerns:



...DELTA STRENGTHENS TO JUST BELOW HURRICANE STATUS OVER THE
OPEN ATLANTIC OCEAN...

AT 11 AM AST...1500Z...THE CENTER OF TROPICAL STORM DELTA WAS
LOCATED NEAR LATITUDE 24.8 NORTH... LONGITUDE 38.8 WEST OR ABOUT
1145 MILES...1845 KM... SOUTHWEST OF THE AZORES.

DELTA IS DRIFTING TOWARD THE EAST NEAR 2 MPH... 4 KM/HR... AND
THIS GENERAL MOTION IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TODAY AND TONIGHT.
HOWEVER... STEERING CURRENTS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN WEAK... SO SOME
SOME ERRATIC MOTION WILL BE POSSIBLE... AND DELTA COULD EVEN BECOME
BECOME STATIONARY AT TIMES. A SLOW MOTION TOWARD THE NORTH IS
FORECAST TO BEGIN ON FRIDAY.

MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE NEAR 70 MPH...110 KM/HR...WITH HIGHER
GUSTS. SOME SLIGHT STRENGTHENING IS FORECAST DURING THE NEXT 24
HOURS... AND DELTA COULD BECOME A HURRICANE LATER TODAY OR TONIGHT.

...and some concern for the Canary islands where the storm is heading now and expected to hit Monday.

Not a hurricane but still a powerful storm.

Wow, how strange...another one hit Spain earlier this year, I wonder if this going to become more common.
