What is a subtropical storm vs. a tropical storm?

Tropical Storm Lane continues to strengthen as it churns westward and is expected to be a major hurricane by the time it crosses into the Central Pacific on Saturday, the National Hurricane Center said. It is the fifth tropical system of the season.

There soon could be another storm that gets a name in the Atlantic, but it will not be tropical!

The storm does not now pose a threat to any land. But, it is forecast to become post-tropical by Friday.

At 11 a.m. Ernesto was about 695 miles east of Cape Race, Newfoundland - or well over 2,000 miles from South Florida. The forecast calls for Lane to reach hurricane strength Thursday and start moving west-northwest late this week.

Air quality at 'unhealthy' level for Portland metro area due to wildfires
With air now rated as unhealthy , even healthy people may have symptoms such as dry eyes, coughing and sinus irritation. Schools and daycare providers should consider postponing outdoor activities or moving them indoors.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 40 miles per hour with higher gusts, and Lane is forecast to become a hurricane on Friday and could become a major hurricane on Saturday, the National Hurricane Center says.

If named this week, it could be the fourth Subtropical Storm of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Also, subtropical storms are cold-core weather systems, while tropical storms and hurricanes are warm-core.

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

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