Subtropical "Melissa" develops over the Central Atlantic....

The expansive low pressure
over the Central Atlantic well to the east/southeast of Bermuda has become subtropical storm "Melissa".  A large trough over the W/NW Atlantic (that was responsible for the Sunday tornado outbreak in the midwest & Ohio Valley) will turn the storm north keeping the system over the open Atlantic.  "Melissa" could become a tropical storm & even flirt with hurricane intensity through Wed. before encountering increasing shear & cooler sea surface temps.  "Melissa" is no threat to the U.S. or any land areas for that matter.

… & more & more video is being released -- click ** here ** from CNN showing the mighty storm surge from super typhoon "Heiyan" -- awful!  Very similar to a tsunami in this case.
