Newly formed Hurricane Michael is the seventh of the year, making 2012 the third most active year in recorded history at this point. Michael is already a Cat 3 with > 100 knot winds, though luckily he looks to be taking his anger out on a mostly empty North Atlantic.
Not so with lovely Leslie, a weaker but still dangerous spinner that looks to be taking aim directly at our friends in Bermuda. Initial forecasts put her near the island early on Sunday, though with her moving at just a knot, anything can happen, and rain might be a bigger concern than wind. Keep your heads down!
