The 18th and 19th named storms of the season have developed over the past 24 hours. Shary is aimed at Bermuda with winds sustained at 50 to 60 mph. The storm should hit the island early Saturday then move rapidly to the northeast and out to sea. Tomas formed late Friday about 200 miles southeast of Barbados. Winds were sustained at 40 mph but he could become a hurricane by Sunday. The storm will move mainly west-northwest over the next few days. In an average season there are usually 10 to 11 named storms in the Atlantic Basin. Overall, it has been an exceptional year for numbers but the United States has largely been spared from a major hurricane hit. The storm season should quickly diminish after Tomas.
