Subtropical Storm Ernesto has formed far out over the Atlantic.

People living there, or in Portugal, Spain and the Democratic Republic of the Congo don't typically have to think about tropical weather systems - but Ernesto is closer to them than to South Florida. Given that some of the guidance (FSSE and HMON) are even higher than that, this seems like a reasonable forecast and is indicated below.

A subtropical storm is a hybrid cyclone. In some ways it's a distinction without a difference for everyone but meteorologists. Tropical storm-force winds of 39 mph or more extend up to 35 miles from Lane's center, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami, which monitors East Pacific storms.

The system is not a threat to land, forecasters say. Starting late Thursday, into Friday, the cyclone will be moving over much colder water which should cause it to become post-tropical by the weekend.

If named this week, it could be the fourth Subtropical Storm of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season.

With five named storms so far in 2018, forecasters are still calling for four to eight more before the end of hurricane season.

The National Hurricane Center started giving names to these types of storms in 2002.
