17 days and counting
The next day, the storm re- emerged into the Atlantic. By late on Aug. 20, the storm began losing tropical characteristics and transitioned into an extratropical cyclone on Aug. 22, 525 km south of Sable Island, N.S.
But wait… there’s more: after four days, the system re-intensified to a tropical storm. Between Aug. 26 and Sept. 1, the storm just sat there. On Sept. 2, Ciriaco began gaining strength again. Early on the following day, the storm was once again a category 1 hurricane. It curved northeastward and passed through the Azores on Sept. 3, shortly before transitioning into an extratropical cyclone.
Ciriaco lasted 36 days, and its last gasps of wind reached all the way to coastal France.
I guess Leslie is just a lightweight.
