1st tropical depression of season forms far from land

First depression of season turns fully tropical, what it means

According to the National Hurricane Center, the system strengthened Thursday morning into a tropical depression about 730 miles west of the Azores.

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

Mayfield, who is attending the National Hurricane Conference in New Orleans, said especially because the depression is no threat to land, the distinction between subtropical and tropical isn't a big deal. There has been only one tropical storm on record during April from 1851 to 2016, according to the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory. The tropical depression is now west of the Azores.

The system has migrated from part tropical and part subtropical to a fully tropical system.
