Subtropical Storm Ernesto forms over the Atlantic

That being said, this season continues to look below-average in terms of total named storms, hurricanes, and major hurricanes.

At 5p.m, the center of Subtropical Storm Ernesto was located near latitude 39.0 North, longitude 45.7 West.

AccuWeather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski said no other tropical development is expected in the Atlantic basin through at least early next week.

New named storms have formed far out over the Atlantic and Pacific, though neither poses a threat to land. Only Hurricane Chris in early July was not subtropical at some point in its life cycle this season.

The storm is a newly named by the US National Hurricane centre and has already reached maximum sustained winds near 40 miles per hour with the possibility of additional strengthening over the next few days.

At 11 a.m. Ernesto was about 695 miles east of Cape Race, Newfoundland - or well over 2,000 miles from South Florida. Additional strengthening is possible this week.
