THE HURRICANE JUST BEFORE CHRISTMAS!

In 1984, LILI became a hurricane on December 20, the latest Atlantic one on record!

Around the first day of winter, December 21, the advances of polar air into the tropics significantly reduce the conditions favorable for hurricane development. In 1984, a subtropical low formed in the Atlantic along a frontal boundary. The low separated from the weakening front and gradually drifted southward to became hurricane LILI. The storm maintained 80 mph winds for 3 days until winds lessened to tropical storm strength north of Puerto Rico. The remains of LILI make landfall on Hispaniola on Christmas Eve.
