Hurricane season is over, but ZETA is coming to party

Surprised to see Tropical Storm ZETA!

Tropical Storm Zeta is about 1000 miles south-southwest of the Azores (Dec.30,2005, 4pm EST) at 25.3N and 37.3W. Zeta is the latest tropical storm on record to form in the Atlantic. The previous record was held by Hurricane Alice of 1954, which also formed on December 30, but earlier in the day than Zeta.
