Another tropical system in the Atlantic, poses no USA threat

Ernesto is the fifth named storm of 2018 and the fourth storm to be called subtropical at some point this year.

Whether a storm is tropical depends on the way it generates energy and the way it's organized, the NHC said.

Tropical storm-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from the storm's center. At least thats what Colorado State University researcher Phil Klotzbach is banking on.His team released its last hurricane forecast of the 2018 season on Thursday, and Klotzbach. Before then they were simply given numbers for identification. Airborne Saharan dust, which has been recorded as far away as Texas this season, is also keeping the atmosphere dry and unfavorable for tropical weather to form. A return to easterly winds will bring an end to the numerous morning storms that we saw this week. The system has about two days to develop into a pure tropical storm before the environment becomes hostile for development.
