Just as the 2007 Atlantic Tropical Cyclone season started off a bit early (with Subtropical Storm Andrea in early May), it also is ending a bit late with the formation of Subtropical Storm Olga on 10 December 2007. An animation of GOES-10 IR images (above) sourced from the CIMSS Tropical Cyclones site shows the cluster of cold cloud top temperatures (red to white enhancement) associated with Olga, moving just north of Puerto Rico.

An analysis of the Deep Layer Mean wind field (above) indicated that an upper level low existed just to the south of Olga. The majority of the 00 UTC 11 December 2007 model forecast tracks (below) moved Olga westward toward the Dominican Republic and Jamaica.
