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.
