Another subtropical cyclone formed today marking the fourth time this season a tropical system acquired hybrid structures.

Subtropical Storm Ernesto developed Wednesday in the Atlantic Ocean about 695 miles southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland.

It will be a subtropical storm and it would be given the next name on the 2018 Atlantic Tropical Season list, which is Ernesto.

Often upper-level troughs prevent hurricanes due to hostile shear but can contribute enough energy to the system to overcome cool surface water in higher latitudes.

Urban Meyer investigation will end Sunday
Ohio State head football coach Urban Meyer has now been on paid administrative leave for roughly two and a half weeks. Meyer, who fired Zach Smith in late July, originally said he knew nothing about a 2015 incident between the Smiths.

Scattered showers should be expected over weekend.

Like a tropical storm is has a closed low at the surface but like non-tropical systems it has a low aloft as well. "The system is expected to become a post-tropical storm Thursday night or early Friday". However, some slightly drier air is also moving in and reducing the number of storms that will form, so the rain chance will be slightly below the average. Whereas a tropical storm may have its strongest winds at its center, a sub tropical storm can have its strongest winds further out. Even though the outlook has been adjusted to lower numbers, we haven't reached the peak of the Hurricane Season.

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