Tropical Storms Nana and Omar form, no threat to US

During the day today two new tropical storms formed. TS Nana formed in the Caribbean and is headed straight west towards Central American and the Yucutan, where it could drop quite a bit of rain. If it is strong enough, it could jump over into the Pacific. TS Omar formed a few hours later off the US East Coast and is speeding away to the ENE away from land. Neither one is any threat to the US. Both are the record earliest for storms to form with those starting letters. There are just six more named storms in this year’s list before they go to Greek letters, and it is not even halfway through the season yet. There are two areas of potential development on the eastern side of the Atlantic, but it is far too early to know if either of them will be a threat to us.
