Ernesto forms in the Atlantic, 5th named storm of hurricane season

Update 2.05pm: The subtropical depression became Subtropical Storm Ernesto, the fifth named storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season.

So why is it considered subtropical and why are these types of storms given names?

But in the 21st century, that probability could drop to one in 100 years, given the likely trajectory of climate change conditions.

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

Hurricane experts with the federal government downgraded their predictions on Thursday for the rest of hurricane season, saying theres a 60 percent chance the final months will bring below-average storm activity.Thats a significant shift from origi.

This outlook is for overall seasonal activity and is not a landfall forecast. Additionally, most of the storms associated with the system are far from the center.

NOAA predicted a almost 70 percent likelihood of El Nino during the hurricane season. The system has about two days to develop into a pure tropical storm before the environment becomes hostile for development. Also, subtropical storms are cold-core weather systems, while tropical storms and hurricanes are warm-core.

Brock encouraged people to visit the federal government's hurricane preparedness website.
