John Grisham and Atlantic storm climatology.

Hey all. Long time since I've posted anything... Hope everyone is well. Praying this will be a season of fish storms. We don't need hurricane devastation on top of all the suffering caused by Covid19.

Anyone here read John Grisham's latest novel Camino Winds? I just started it this afternoon, but the first line is driving me crazy.

He writes:

"Leo spun to life in late July in the restless waters of the far eastern Atlantic, about two hundred miles west of Cape Verde. He was soon spotted from space, properly named, and classified"

Leo in late July?!?!
What is the earliest recorded date for formation / naming of an L storm or even AL12?

Tried to Google it without success, but I know S2K folks will have the answer.

Stay safe all!

That would be Luis in 1995... on August 29. Looks like you have a record-smashingly hyperactive season ahead! :spam:
