We have had 3 named tropical systems which is a record for so early in the season. I would put an asterisk next to this stat because we seem to name storms today that would not be named in the past. Cristobal like the other 2 is very disorganized. I have also noticed so many times when a line of thunderstorms is approaching, most of the time a sever thunderstorm warning is issued. Maybe they are playing it safe but a lot of these warnings for thunderstorms end up being nothing more than a good old fashioned thunderstorm not really anything terribly bad.

The second named one was a TS for like 5 hours. Hardly worth naming, but hey, all in the name of media ratings right? Cant lead a newscast with a plain old rainstorm, needs a name to be significant.

I saw another “storm” in the middle of Atlantic was named Dolly. No threat to anything, but named. This is why people tune out and ignore real storm threats.
