Subtropical Storm Ernesto develops in Atlantic

Subtropical Storm Ernesto

Aside from Ernesto, there are no other noteworthy disturbances in the Atlantic basin, and additional tropical system formation is not anticipated through the end of this week.

Ernesto is the fifth named storm of the US Atlantic hurricane season.

Meanwhile, the Pacific's Tropical Storm Lane is 1,285 miles (2,065 kilometers) southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula and is heading west at 13 mph (20 kph). It will be over warm sea surface temperatures for the next 24 hours, where some strengthening could occur. A faster northeastward motion is forecast to occur on Thursday and Friday.

The system is not a threat to land, forecasters say. 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.

Tropical Depression Five is likely to become a tropical storm later today.

The term "subtropical" means the system now lacks the symmetrical characteristics of most tropical storms.

Tropical storm-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from the storm's center.

The possibility for Ernesto comes less than a week after the Climate Prediction Center reduced its forecast to reflect a below average hurricane season.

If named this week, it could be the fourth Subtropical Storm of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
