We may get a bit of a break from the hyperactive tropics, at least for a while.  Tropical Storm Karen, but it barely hanging on as a tropical storm early on Thursday.  At .  At 5 am, Karen was located near 25.5 North, 63.5 West, and was moving north-northeast at 15 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 40 miles per hour.  Karen is looking ragged as it battles dry air and wind shear.  Karen’s track remains complicated, and the storm is expected to slow down and then loop around — all well east of the Bahamas.  The National Hurricane Center forecast now calls for Karen to weaken to a remnant low by Monday, far to our east.  We’ll continue to watch Karen to see how this works out.

Far away from us, Hurricane Lorenzo continues to strengthen, but it’s in open waters and expected to remain there. At 5 am Thursday, Lorenzo was located near  15.1 North, 39.3 West, and was moving west-northwest at 15 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 100 miles per hour, and Lorenzo is forecast to become a major hurricane on Thursday.
