Subtropical Storm Storm Ernesto forms in Atlantic

Subtropical Storm Ernesto

New named storms have formed far out over the Atlantic and Pacific, though neither poses a threat to land.

As of 5 a.m. today, Tropical Storm Lane was 2,185 miles east-southeast of Hilo.

"Some additional strengthening is possible during the next 24 hours, " the advisory said. Starting late Thursday, into Friday, the cyclone will be moving over much colder water which should cause it to become post-tropical by the weekend. Dvorak estimates range from 30 to 40 kt, and with the increased organization since the last advisory, the initial wind speed is set to 35 kt. Forecasters say it is likely to strengthen into a Category 3 hurricane by Friday night. This system has that "subtropical" designation because it lacks all of the characteristics of a pure tropical system. Debby was also classified as a Subtropical Storm.




Hurricane season peaks in September and does not end until November 30th.

If named this week, it could be the fourth Subtropical Storm of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Airborne Saharan dust, which has been recorded as far away as Texas this season, is also keeping the atmosphere dry and unfavorable for tropical weather to form.

Subtropical Storm Ernesto grew out of what started earlier Wednesday as Subtropical Depression Five.
