Tropical Storm Claudette forms in Atlantic Ocean
Claudette doesn't pose threat to U.S.
PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Tropical Storm Claudette formed Monday in the Atlantic Ocean, but it doesn't pose a threat to the United States.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami expects Claudette to be short-lived since it will be moving over much cooler waters and into an area of increasing wind-shear.
Claudette was moving northeast at 17 mph with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph.
The forecast track has Claudette making landfall in Newfoundland by mid-week, but Local 10 News hurricane specialist Max Mayfield said it would likely dissipate before reaching Canada.
