Tropical Storm Zeta Arrives Fashionably Late

From Times Wire Reports

In a surprising curtain call to the Atlantic’s busiest-ever hurricane season, Tropical Storm Zeta formed in the open ocean, tying a record for the latest-developing storm.

Although the National Hurricane Center in Miami said Zeta wasn’t forecast to become a hurricane or threaten land, the storm was significant because it came a month after the official Nov. 30 end to the unprecedented season.
