  • Tropical Storm Ileana

- The National Hurricane Center has announced that a Subtropical storm has formed in the North Atlantic.

The latest forecast from the U.S. National Hurricane Center said, "At 1100 AM AST [1500 UTC], the center of Subtropical Storm Debby was located near latitude 38.9 North, longitude 48.5 West".

There are now no coastal watches or warnings in effect. There is a potential for fully tropical characteristics, according to the NHC's discussion, but significant strengthening isn't expected. Debby is forecast to dissipate in a couple of days.

Far out to sea, a strengthening Hurricane Hector was in the central Pacific as a strong Category 4 storm, with winds of 155 miles per hour (250 kph), the Center Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu reported.


Debby is the fourth-named storm of the season.

"The CSU Tropical Meteorology Project team is predicting a total of nine additional named storms to form after August 1", the university said in a news release.

Hector also posed no immediate threat to land, but forecasters said people in Hawaii should monitor the storm's progress as it was projected to pass just south of the islands by midweek.

Colorado State's team said the Atlantic remains much colder than normal, which provides less fuel for developing tropical cyclones. Warm ocean temperatures and strong wind shear are contributing to the lack of activity.
