In far eastern Atlantic forms Tropical Storm Vince

Tropical Storm Vince formed Sunday in the far eastern Atlantic, making this hurricane season the second busiest on record, forecasters said.

The 20th named storm of the season formed between the Azores and the Canary Islands in waters that are cooler than what is typically needed for a tropical storm, said Chris Sisko, a meteorologist at the National Hurricane Center in Miami.

But the storm with top sustained winds of about 50 mph (80 kph) posed no threat to land. That's because it wasn't expected to survive for long due to the cooler waters and other weather systems in the area, Sisko said. Water temperatures are about 73-75 degrees Fahrenheit (23 to 24 Celsius), below the 80 degrees F (27 C) usually needed for a tropical storm.

Only one other Atlantic season had more tropical storms and hurricanes since record keeping began in 1851 there were 21 in 1933, AP reports.

At 11 a.m. EDT (1500 GMT), Vince's center was located about 515 miles (830 kilometers) east-southeast of the Azores and about 140 miles (225 kilometers) northwest of the Madeira Islands. It was moving northeast at about 5 mph (8 kph).
