The term "subtropical" means the system now lacks the symmetrical characteristics of most tropical storms.

Subtropical Storm Ernesto formed Wednesday morning in the central Atlantic - several hundred miles off Newfoundland.

However, unlike a tropical system, a subtropical storm isn't well-organized. The system has about two days to develop into a pure tropical storm before the environment becomes hostile for development.

At this point, Lane poses no threat to land.

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

A subtropical system has transitioned into Tropical Storm Debby, but it is not expected to impact land as it meanders far out in the north Atlantic.As of 5 a.m. Wednesday, the storm had maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour and was located about 1,175 mi.

Ernesto is the fifth named storm of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season.

At about 11 a.m. Wednesday, Lane was located located about 1,285 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California, Mexico, or a distant 2,187 miles away from Hilo.

By the end of this week, the third subtropical storm of the year could be named Ernesto. Also, subtropical storms are cold-core weather systems, while tropical storms and hurricanes are warm-core.
