1st tropical depression of season forms far from land

Martinez Ortega, said that it is a subtropical depression, the first of the season, located in the center of the Atlantic Ocean, and that it is not expected to develop a tropical cyclone over the next week.

So what does it matter that the system morphed from sub-tropical to tropical?

The depression had sustained winds of 35 miles per hour with higher gusts, and it was moving northwest at 14 miles per hour.

Tropical storm formation over the Atlantic basin is very rare during the months of January, February, March and April.

The storm system formed earlier in the week and was upgraded to a subtropical storm on Wednesday.

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. - An off-season tropical storm is being monitored southwest of the Azores.

This is a live loop of the potential tropical storm over the central Atlantic.

The system has migrated from part tropical and part subtropical to a fully tropical system. WDSU meteorologist Kweilyn Murphy said it is no threat to land.

If the current system strengthens into a tropical storm, it would be named Arlene. It will continue to cause rough seas over the middle of the Atlantic, however.

Hurricane season in the Atlantic runs from June 1 to November 30.
