This was yesterday, may 20, announced the national hurricane center (NHC). The storm, named «Andrea», and it is classified as a subtropical storm.

«Data from a reconnaissance plane of the U.S. air force showed that the low-pressure system located several hundred miles southwest of Bermuda, formed a well-defined center with maximum sustained winds near 40 miles per hour», — stated in the message the NHC.

AccuWeather meteorologists are tracking a low-pressure system, which on Monday moved North from the Bahamas, gaining strength.

#GOESEast is watching a disturbance over the western Atlantic Ocean that has the potential to become a short-lived subtropical or tropical cyclone by tonight or Tuesday. If it does, it’s unlikely to develop any further once it encounters a cold front.

Expert AccuWeather hurricane Dan Kottlowski said that although the storm is strong enough to get the name, he not threatened the coast and especially the coast of the United States.
«It will be a short storm, said Kottlowski. — Probably by the evening of Tuesday she will depart from Bermuda».

According to the forecast of the NHC, Andrea weakened to a subtropical depression early Wednesday morning, may 22.

And although the Islands residents were not in danger, all the captains of the ships in the area should exercise particular caution.

According to Dan Kottlowski, it is difficult to say that the development of «Andrea» means for future hurricane seasons.

«It is a weak storm, on the basis that it is impossible to make any conclusions or predictions» — said the expert on hurricanes.

The next tropical storm that formed in the Atlantic, will be called «Barry».
