Simply open the app, tap the radar button, then tap the radar settings button and tap "tropical tracks" to see all the current and active systems.

Ernesto is the fifth named storm of the US Atlantic hurricane season.

A subtropical storm is similar to a tropical storm in that it develops over the open ocean waters and, like a tropical storm, it has winds of at least 39 miles per hour. Some additional strengthening is possible during the next 24 hours.

The subtropical depression is expected to become Subtropical Storm Ernesto later Wednesday. Dvorak estimates range from 30 to 40 kt, and with the increased organization since the last advisory, the initial wind speed is set to 35 kt.

The thunderstorms associated with subtropical systems and the strongest winds are found farther away from the center of storm.

A subtropical storm has characteristics of a mid-latitude cyclone (those winter storms that hit the midwest and east coast that can bleed into spring) and a tropical system with a warm core. Pop-up storms look to stay in the forecast through Friday, until a cold front arrives on Saturday that will result in scattered storms for that day.

Subtropical Storm Ernesto grew out of what started earlier Wednesday as Subtropical Depression Five.

The possibility for Ernesto comes less than a week after the Climate Prediction Center reduced its forecast to reflect a below average hurricane season.
