1st tropical depression of season forms far from land

Martinez Ortega, said that it is a subtropical depression, the first of the season, located in the center of the Atlantic Ocean, and that it is not expected to develop a tropical cyclone over the next week.

The system is running out of time to become Tropical Storm Arlene.

Subtropical Depression One has transitioned into a tropical depression.

Tropical depression No. 1 was moving northwest at 14 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds at 35 miles per hour. There has been only one tropical storm on record during April from 1851 to 2016, according to the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory.

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. - An off-season tropical storm is being monitored southwest of the Azores.

Should the system advance beyond the depression stage, the storm would be given a name as a result.

"It doesn't mean a thing in the world for the most part", said Max Mayfield, a former director of the National Hurricane Center and hurricane specialist for Channel 10 in Miami.

The clock is ticking on strengthening of the system, however. WDSU meteorologist Kweilyn Murphy said it is no threat to land.

There are many documented cases in years past of named storms forming before the official start of hurricane season which is June 1, and those that occurred early were no indication of how active the season was overall.
