The fourth named storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season has formed in the central Atlantic Tuesday morning, as the low we’ve been tracking has developed enough tropical characteristics (while retaining gale force winds) to be considered a subtropical storm. Its name is Debby
At 11 am Tuesday, Subtropical Storm Debby was located near 38.9 North, 48.5 West, and was moving north at 16 miles per hour. Maximum sustained winds were 40 miles per hour. Debby is expected to be absorbed by a trough on Wednesday or early on Thursday. It poses no threat to land.
