Igor is living on borrowed time

Technically, Igor is no longer a tropical storm, but the National Hurricane Center had decided to let Igor keep it’s Tropical Storm Symbol and that status that goes along with that for the rest of the day. If Igor shapes up and gets its act in gear, then, well, we’ll see.

Igor is in the vicinity of Cape Verde and is expected to move west or west/northwest through an area with conditions very favorable to hurricane development. By the end of the coming weekend, Igor is expected to be a respectable hurricane. Indeed, this may be one to keep an eye on.

Meanwhile, there is a nasty bit of storm blowing up in the southeastern West Indies that has risen to the status of orange squiggle. There is a better than even chance that this will dissipate without issue.
