Subtropical storm forms way out in Atlantic

Subtropical Storm Debby formed in the north Atlantic Tuesday morning, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center.

Instead, we will return to a more typical summer pattern for Florida with afternoon storms building inland and drifting closer to the coast with time.

Further intensification is likely over the next few days as Lane encounters a conducive large-scale environment consisting of low shear and fairly warm waters.

An initial intensity for this system is set to a "possibly conservative" 35 miles per hour, which is slightly below the latest satellite intensity estimate.

Lane is forecast to become a hurricane on Friday and could become a major hurricane on Saturday.

This characteristics will also include winds reaching farther from the center than a typical tropical system and this often prevents subtropical storms from rapidly intensifying.

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

Hurricane experts with the federal government downgraded their predictions on Thursday for the rest of hurricane season, saying theres a 60 percent chance the final months will bring below-average storm activity.Thats a significant shift from origi.

You may recall that in 2017, what was then Post-Tropical Cyclone Ophelia was moving through the northeast Atlantic - toward Ireland.
