University of Colorado hurricane forecaster Philip Klotzbach expects a new record for named storms early in the season to be set this year. The US National Hurricane Center is giving the tropical cyclone formation developing from a low-pressure area southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands (off Africa) a 50% chance of becoming a named storm. If it gets named, it would be Josephine. In a tweet, Klotzbach remarks that the current record for the earliest Atlantic “J” storm is Jose that occurred on 22 August 2005.
