[Forbes]You Are Not Hallucinating - Hurricane Leslie Is Headed Toward
Spain And Africa

You absolutely read the title correctly, and it is very similar to one
that I wrote about Hurricane Ophelia in 2017. Hurricane Leslie is
currently headed toward Africa and Europe. The "toward" is the "weather
weird" part of the statement because typically tropical systems have
their origins in easterly waves that move "away" from the African
continent. Leslie is a long-lasting storm that has drunkenly meandered
around the Atlantic Ocean since September 23rd. I am writing this on
October 12th. It has generated 15 named days according to Colorado State
University expert Dr. Philip Klotzbach and certainly has some days left.
I should also mention that spent a few days as a post-tropical system,
and those are not counted as part of the named record. You can certainly
see why Hurricane Leslie has been called the "zombie" storm. What
caught my eye is the latest forecast track, and a statement issued by
the National Hurricane Center:

A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for Madeira Island (north
of the Canary Islands) in the far eastern Atlantic Ocean due to #Leslie.
Tropical-storm-force winds are expected early Saturday morning.

If you look at current satellite imagery of Hurricane Leslie moving
eastward (below), Africa and Europe are within view folks. That's weird.
