Subtropical Storm Leslie returns

FORT MYERS, Fla. -

After spending most of the week as a non-tropical system, Subtropical Storm Leslie transformed again on Friday.

The National Hurricane Center dropped the name from the storm on Tuesday after the system lost its tropical structure.

 

The track of Leslie will take it southwest as it rides around high pressure building off of the Northeastern US.

 

Despite the odd and somewhat ominous looking forecast cone, the only place that needs to keep a close eye on Leslie at this point is Bermuda.

Because Leslie will be moving into warmer waters, the storm is expected to completely transition to a tropical storm after the weekend.

 

Forecast models indicate the Leslie will strengthen and may become a hurricane in five to seven days.

As early as two weeks ago, many of those forecast models indicated that Leslie would be a long-term storm. It now looks like this could be a two-plus week system before it's all said and done.
