Hurricane Alex Forms in Atlantic, Earliest Since 1938

Hurricane Alex formed in the Northeastern Atlantic today, and is set to impact the Azores Islands overnight into tomorrow.  Hurricane Alex has sustained winds of 85 MPH and is churning due north at 22 MPH.  After impacting the Azores, Alex will become a post-tropical cyclone as it moves to the northwest rapidly.  Alex will end up, most likely as a post-tropical storm or remnant low, near the Northeastern Canadian Maritime or around southern portions of the Greenland Maritime.

US Snow Update: Across the Northeast, more nor’easters can be expected, especially in early to late February, when cold air may mix in to create significant snow events.  In other locations across the United States, more of the same is to be expected in the short term, but there is the potential for a small snow event in and around southern Oklahoma/ northern Texas over the weekend, according to the GFS, the CMC, and the ECMWF computer models.
