There’s a new storm in the Atlantic — Subtropical Depression Five. It’s far from land and not expected to threaten any coastline. It’s the fourth subtropical storm to form so far this season in the Atlantic — and that’s out of five named storms. The others were Alberto, which made landfall on the Florida Panhandle on Memorial Day; Beryl, which went on to become a hurricane; and Debby, which started off as a subtropical storm but also transitioned to a fully tropical system. As of Wednesday morning the newest subtropical storm, Subtropical Depression Five, was located about 1,015 miles west of the Azores and was moving north at 5 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center. The depression had winds of 35 mph and was expected to strengthen into Subtropical Storm Ernesto later today. It is not expected to become a hurricane, however, and could transition to an extratropical system in 48 hours or less, the hurricane center said.
