Late season storm

3 weeks until the official end of the 2008 hurricane season, and just to remind us that we're not quite through yet, there is TD 17 just off the coast of Nicaragua. May even become a tropical storm in a day or so and a hurricane by the weekend, which would make it Paloma. The current 5 day track has it curving around to the northeast and heading over Cuba early next week so it shouldn't pose any problems for the US.
