The first subtropical depression has formed in the Central Atlantic far from the US mainland. The system is more than 2000 miles from South Florida and is unlikely to strengthen at this time.
SD #1 has top winds of 35 mph and is moving NNE at 8 mph. Not to worry through, wind shear and cooler waters will limit development.
While unusual to have these depressions forming this early in the season, this is now the third year in a row with some form of a tropical cyclone developing before the official start of the season. The official hurricane season begins June 1 and runs through November.
This would just appear to be Mother Nature reminding us all to be prepared.
