2013 Atlantic Tropical Season Review: Subtropical/Tropical Storm Melissa


The final named storm of the 2013 Atlantic Tropical season was the only named storm of November in the Atlantic Ocean, and was only fully tropical for a limited amount of time.

On November 18th, the National Hurricane Center categorized a developing low pressure area as Subtropical Storm Melissa, which had some, but not all, of the characteristics needed to become a fully tropical storm.

As it moved north and later northeast, the storm would become fully tropical on November 20th.

Towards the tail end of its life as a tropical system, it did brush the Azores islands, but caused no significant damage or fatalities.
The last storm of the 2013 season would lose characteristics and break up on November 22nd.
