TROPICAL STORM JOSEPHINE

Tropical Storm Josephine in the Open Atlantic

A weak low pressure system formed along a stationary front on September 16, about 750 miles east of Bermuda. The low moved slowly westward through the next day, and it began to take on characteristics of a depression on September 17, and hence became Tropical Depression Eleven that day. The depression started out moving generally northward until becoming Tropical Storm Josephine on September 18. After becoming a Tropical Storm, Jospehine accelerated northeast in the flow of a trough. The storm lost its tropical characteristics on September 19, and a ship report indicated that the system had strengthened with 55 mph winds. The extratropical storm merged with another extratropical storm later on September 19. No damages or deaths were reported due to Josephine, having never made landfall.
