A subtropical system has formed in the northern Atlantic Ocean.

New named storms have formed far out over the Atlantic and Pacific, though neither poses a threat to land.

Instead, we will return to a more typical summer pattern for Florida with afternoon storms building inland and drifting closer to the coast with time.

An initial intensity for this system is set to a "possibly conservative" 35 miles per hour, which is slightly below the latest satellite intensity estimate. Like a tropical storm is has a closed low at the surface but like non-tropical systems it has a low aloft as well.

Who is Omarosa? And why is she causing such a stir?
This past Sunday, Manigault Newman released a tape of White House chief of staff John Kelly firing her in the Situation Room. Maher's comment was in response to Trump saying, "I knew her well - she worked for me on numerous occasions".

The latest forecast from the U.S. National Hurricane Center said, "At 500 AM AST [0900 UTC], the center of Subtropical Depression Five was located near latitude 37.6 North, longitude 45.6 West".

The thunderstorms associated with subtropical systems and the strongest winds are found farther away from the center of storm.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration revised its hurricane season forecast earlier this month, advising people that the Atlantic hurricane season will be less active than usual. But, it is forecast to become post-tropical by Friday.

Currently, other than Subtropical Depression Five, no other systems are being monitored by the hurricane center.
