South Atlantic Hurricane

I feel compelled to start the year off with an update, not on the north
Atlantic basin, but on the south Atlantic basin.  Yes, the basin that
never gets tropical cyclones according to climatology and traditional
thinking.  Until now...

The tropical cyclone community has become alive with excitement over
this unprecedented event.  First accurate position and intensity
estimates were made midday on the 25th, and as of 15Z today, it's at
about 28.7S 44.5W and roughly estimated to be 65kts (985mb... ROUGHLY). 
Since there is no organization responsible for this basin, there are no
forecasts or advisories being written for it.  It has beautiful outflow,
banding, and a clear eye.
