And Emily makes 5

Boy, when the the NHC forecasts a busy season, they're not kidding around. Not even two months into the season and already there have been 5 named storms out of the 12-15 forecast for the season with almost 5 months left to go. At this rate the number of storms we'll end up for the season will either blow that prediction out of the water, or the rest of the season will be quiet(er). I'm starting to think the former, but hopefully it will be the latter.

TD5 became TS Emily over night and the long range track has it heading over Cuba, becoming a hurricane in a couple of days. Another one to keep an eye on.
