Paulette finally died today Discussion

ON September 3 a tropical wave moved off of the coast of Africa. It went on to become a hurricane, landfall on Bermuda, become extratropical in the North Atlantic, move south into the Azores and become a tropical storm, do a loop back through the Azores, then, as a remnant low, move west back across the Atlantic.

Today, 5 weeks later, that remnant low has finally degraded to the point where it is no longer distinguishable from the background, and will soon be swept up by a cold front moving into the region east of the Bahamas.

We will miss you Paulette.
