Named Storm Alex formed off the Atlantic African coast from a strong tropical wave. This hurricane is the first to develop in the Atlantic basin in Januiary since just before World War II.

This storm will be tracking across the Azores and into the far northern Atlantic over the next 4 days where it will weaken. Since this storm poses no threat to the coastal US, this will be our only mention of 2016 Named Storm Alex.
