2013 Atlantic Tropical Season Review: Tropical Storm Erin


It brought winds and rain to parts of the Cape Verde Islands, but the fifth named storm of the 2013 Atlantic Tropical season would come nowhere close to the United States.

On August 15th, the National Hurricane Center officially declared Erin a Tropical Storm with sustained winds of 40 miles per hour.

The storm caused Tropical Storm Warnings to be issued for parts of the Cape Verde Islands to the west of Africa.

However, dry air and wind shear kept Erin from developing too much further and she fluctuated between Tropical Depression and Tropical Storm strength through the next couple of days of her life.

By August 18th, the storm had become further disorganized and broke apart deep in the Atlantic Ocean.
