A Rare December Subtropical Storm could form for First Time in nearly a Decade


Peak hurricane season may be officially over, but a rare subtropical storm in December could be forming in the Atlantic Ocean for the first time in nearly a decade — and it already has a name lined up.

The National Hurricane Center issued a special tropical weather outlook Monday as a low-pressure system is “producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms” along the central Atlantic Ocean. As of 8:30 p.m. ET, the system is located about 800 miles northeast of the northern Leeward Islands of the Caribbean.

What does this all mean? Possibly an organized tropical depression or a subtropical storm, which according to the National Weather Service “typically has a large, cloud-free center of circulation, with very heavy thunderstorm activity in a band removed at least 100 miles from the center” and could also bring strong winds.
