True tropical systems take backseat to hybrid storms

True tropical systems take backseat to hybrid storms

A subtropical storm is a hybrid cyclone.

A subtropical system has formed in the northern Atlantic Ocean.

Our next storm system will get closer to us Friday, and that will result in a better chance of some afternoon storms.

Tropical Storm Lane pushed westward across the eastern Pacific on Thursday, while Subtropical Storm Ernesto headed across the northern Atlantic in the general direction of Ireland and the United Kingdom.

It was moving west at about 13 miles per hour and had maximum sustained winds near 45 miles per hour.




Whether a storm is tropical depends on the way it generates energy and the way it's organized, the NHC said.

Hurricane Chris bucked the trend but Alberto, Beryl, Debby, and now Ernesto all acquired a mix of upper level cold core temperatures along with low level warm center.

You may remember Alberto was a subtropical storm when it moved through portions of Florida in late May. The system has about two days to develop into a pure tropical storm before the environment becomes hostile for development.

Ernesto developed over cool water about 700 miles southeast of Newfoundland Wednesday with all the hallmarks of classic subtropical systems which have been so common this year. Debby was also classified as a Subtropical Storm.
