Tropical Storm Lane Forecast To Become Major Hurricane

Subtropical Storm Ernesto has formed hundreds of miles away from the USA coast, and will likely never threaten North America. Also, subtropical storms are cold-core weather systems, while tropical storms and hurricanes are warm-core.

Also of note, is smoke from the California wildfires can be seen surrounding Subtropical Depression Five.

The storm, which is moving north at 8 miles per hour, is the 5th named system of the season and has formed in a similar area to its predecessor, Tropical Storm Debby.

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.

"Over the next 12 days it wandered across the Atlantic, mostly as a tropical storm, until it reached near the Bahamas where it blossomed into the monster Category 5 hurricane", Lushine said. Winds of 40 mph extend outward up to 160 miles from the center.

The National Hurricane Center started giving names to these types of storms in 2002.

You may remember Alberto was a subtropical storm when it moved through portions of Florida in late May. Eventually, it might wind up impacting Europe as a remnant low pressure area next week. Typically, the wind field on a sub tropical storm is wider than a tropical storm.

As it's still very far away, it's too early to tell how the storm could affect the Hawaiian Islands, but the current forecast path takes it just to the south of the Big Island sometime Wednesday.
