    No joke.

    It's only a baby hurricane (tropical storm to be precise), but could grow to a CAT 1 hurricane in the next 48 hours.

    Usually atlantic storms will travel towards America from the African coast, but this little terror (Vince) has decided to travel north east towards Portugal.

    Well, they certainly need the rain in Portugal - it's been as dry the last few months!
    Hope it doesn't change course and head our way, unlikely I know but the way the weather has been behaving around the world lately :eek:

    This kind of storm is fuelled by warm water which we cetainly don't have - if it was to head our way it would have weakened substantially by the time it got here, indeed projections are it will barely qualify as a tropical storm by the time it reaches Portugal...
