The fifth named storm of the 2018 hurricane season has formed far off in the north Atlantic and poses no threat to land.As of Wednesday at 11 a.m., Subtropical Storm Ernesto had maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour with higher gusts and was about 695 mi.

It is too soon to forecast conditions after Sunday but the subtropical cyclone is expected to have cleared early on Sunday morning.

Forecasters are tracking a new named storm in the Eastern Pacific that is forecast to strengthen into a major hurricane.

Computer models show the system moving north-northeast. Like a tropical storm is has a closed low at the surface but like non-tropical systems it has a low aloft as well.

Tropical storm-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from the storm's center.

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.

The National Hurricane Center started giving names to these types of storms in 2002. Also, subtropical storms are cold-core weather systems, while tropical storms and hurricanes are warm-core. Before then they were simply given numbers for identification.

By the end of this week, the third subtropical storm of the year could be named Ernesto.
