The NHC’s forecast for Subtropical Storm Oscar at 5: 00 PM EDT on October 27, 2018.Dennis Mersereau

Subtropical Storm Oscar formed out in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean on Friday evening. The fifteenth named storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season began its life like so many other storms this year—not purely tropical, but close enough that it counts. Forecasters expect the storm to eventually strengthen into a hurricane as it meanders through central Atlantic over the next week.

Oscar formed from a non-tropical low-pressure system that slowly began to acquire subtropical characteristics. A subtropical storm is a low-pressure system that isn’t fully tropical, meaning that its structure isn’t compact, it doesn’t have warm air throughout the storm, and it’s gathering some of its energy from upper-level winds. Subtropical storms in the Atlantic often transition over to fully-tropical entities if they remain over warmer waters, and that’s exactly what Oscar is expected to do in the next couple of days.

The latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center shows Subtropical Storm Oscar strengthening into a hurricane by the beginning of next week as it moves safely east of Bermuda. It’s likely that the remainder of the storm’s life will play out safely away from land in the central Atlantic Ocean, where it will pose no threat to anyone other than some ships traveling between the continents.

We’ve seen an above-normal number of named storms in the Atlantic Ocean this year. An average season sees 12 named storms and we’ve seen 15 so far this year. However, the number of storms that form doesn’t tell the whole story. Most of the storms we’ve seen in the Atlantic have been weak or short-lived, a testament to the relatively hostile conditions that have prevailed across the Atlantic this season.

Almost half of all the named storms we’ve seen this year were subtropical storms at some point during their lives. Six named storms—Alberto, Debby, Ernesto, Joyce, Leslie, and Oscar—began life as subtropical storms, while Beryl redeveloped as a subtropical storm after having been tropical before losing organization. This is a record number of subtropical storms in the Atlantic, according to hurricane expert Philip Klotzbach. Despite the unusual number of subtropical storms, two storms managed to reach their full potential—Florence and Michael—and become historic disasters in the United States, reinforcing the fact that major storms are possible even in an otherwise low-key year.

Subtropical Storm Oscar formed out in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean on Friday night. The fifteenth called storm of the 2018 Atlantic typhoon season started its life thus lots of other storms this year– not simply tropical, however close enough that it counts. Forecasters anticipate the storm to ultimately reinforce into a typhoon as it meanders through main Atlantic over the next week.

Oscar formed from a non-tropical low-pressure system that gradually started to get subtropical qualities. A subtropical storm is a low-pressure system that isn’t totally tropical, suggesting that its structure isn’t compact, it does not have warm air throughout the storm, and it’s collecting a few of its energy from upper-level winds. Subtropical storms in the Atlantic frequently shift over to fully-tropical entities if they stay over warmer waters, which’s precisely what Oscar is anticipated to do in the next number of days.

The most recent projection from the National Cyclone Center reveals Subtropical Storm Oscar enhancing into a typhoon by the start of next week as it moves securely east of Bermuda. It’s most likely that the rest of the storm’s life will play out securely far from land in the main Atlantic Ocean, where it will position no danger to anybody besides some ships taking a trip in between the continents.

(******************************** )We have actually seen an above-normal variety of called storms in the Atlantic Ocean this year. A typical season sees12 called storms and we have actually seen15 up until now this year. Nevertheless, the variety of storms that form does not inform the entire story. The majority of the storms we have actually seen in the Atlantic have actually been weak or short-term, a testimony to the fairly hostile conditions that have actually dominated throughout the Atlantic this season.

Practically half of all the called storms we have actually seen this year were subtropical storms eventually throughout their lives. 6 called storms– Alberto, Debby, Ernesto, Joyce, Leslie, and Oscar– started life as subtropical storms, while Beryl redeveloped as a subtropical storm after having actually been tropical prior to losing company.
