Tropical Storm Igor forms in the Atlantic(Examiner)
A tropical storm has formed in the Atlantic, off of Cape Verde, Western Africa. This tropical storm, named Igor, is forecast to become a hurricane before the start of the weekend, heading west toward the Lesser Antilles next week.
The system has wind speeds of of 45 mph at the current time and is moving west at 6 mph. This is the speed of a sprint on a racetrack or a light jog.
Current long term projections call for Igor to follow a path similar to that of Hurricane Danielle a few weeks ago. A front is expected to cross the US pushing the remnants of Hermine to the east and then steer the path of Igor to the north possibly towards Bermuda.
