Subtropical Depression Five has formed in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean but it is no threat to land, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Tropical Storm Lane pushed westward across the eastern Pacific on Thursday, while Subtropical Storm Ernesto headed across the northern Atlantic in the general direction of Ireland and the United Kingdom. This was the case when Beryl reformed as a subtropical storm south of Bermuda in July.
The term "subtropical" means the system now lacks the symmetrical characteristics of most tropical storms. That being said, this season continues to look below-average in terms of total named storms, hurricanes, and major hurricanes.
It had winds of 40 miles per hour (65 kph) Wednesday and forecasters say it might grow into a major hurricane by Saturday.
Hurricane-force winds extend 25 miles from the center of the storm, while tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles. We are near the peak of the season, but the rest of the Atlantic is expected to be quiet for the next week or so. But, it is forecast to become post-tropical by Friday. 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.
