Yeah I mean it's at 50 mph, nothing to sneeze at. It was more of a philosophical thought than a meteorological one.

There are a couple of areas in Portugal that have been experiencing some drought, so this may not be a bad thing as long as there's not too much wind damage.

Is Alpha much more than an MCV that happened to develop over the water? That water is pretty cold, and it's just SE of an upper level low. I get that it is labelled as sub-tropical and not tropical, but I'm not sure I agree with designating this with a storm name.

Here's the 500mb map for the area.

It has an eyewall like structure and banding consistent with a subtropical storm.

I mean I guess if we were going to start the Greek Alphabet, it was only fitting the first one of the bunch take on Europe. :) Hope everyone there is watching and paying attention.

Not that she is a threat to anyone or anything, but Paulette is back. Someone was listening that they didn't need to rename her.
