Post Season Tropical Storm Peter Forms, almost a Hurricane
      Tue Dec 09 2003 02:01 PM

Wow, another post season storm, and a strong one to boot. Tropical Storm Peter formed this morning in the Eastern Atlantic. The first time since 1887 two storms have formed in December. And this one may even become a hurricane, which after such a quiet November, is amazing to me.

Although this one is heading toward extratropical, the fact and historical point of two storms in December, along with one in April for the 2003 year will make it very notible. It only makes me wonder more about next year...

Odette dissapated after Flooding lots of the Dominican Republic and then shooting off toward the east northeast.
