Tropical Storm Rina Races Towards Cooler Waters

Rina became the 17th named storm of the active 2017 Atlantic season Monday night. Rina is still a minimal tropical storm at 10 AM AST with 40 mph winds. Despite hostile upper level winds, convection increases on the northeast side of Rina. If this continues, Rina may increase a bit in intensity over the next 24 hours. The disorganized tropical storm will transition to an extra-tropical system by Thursday morning over the cooler north Atlantic. It is no threat to land.



RIna sits over luke warm Atlantic waters Tuesday. It moves into an even cooler environment over the next 48 hours. During this time it will lose tropical characteristics. Beyond Rina, there are no areas of interest for the next 5-7 days+.
