Tropical storm Humberto transformed itself into Hurricane Humberto in the wee hours of the morning -- something meteorologists weren't even talking about when I went to bed. It's fascinating how quickly this storm has developed: 2 days ago it didn't even exist and now it's a Catagory 1 Hurricane.

Earlier this season 2 Catagory 5's crashed into Central America -- a rare thing indeed since there have been only 13 in recorded history and no season with more than 1. The weather systems are definitely changing, I believe.

Here's a loop showing the progress of Humberto so far, courtesy of the magnificent Weather Underground (still only $5 for an entire year!).
