Hurricane Lorenzo hit the western end of the Azores island chain in the Atlantic Ocean overnight. It continues to weaken this morning and has become post-tropical, meaning it is no longer a hurricane. It is now a regular area of low pressure in the northeastern Atlantic.
It will still bring high surf and near-hurricane force winds to Ireland and the United Kingdom late this week, as will as causing rip currents on North Carolina beaches for another couple of days.
The post-tropical remnants of Lorenzo will produce gusty winds and heavy rain in northern Europe this weekend.
There is one other area of disturbed weather that we’re tracking in the tropics, but it does not have a good chance of significant development over the next 5 days as it tracks towards the Yucatan Peninsula.
