Once again (even before the June 1 official start), the Atlantic #hurricane (#TropicalCyclone) season kicked off with a whole ‘nother type—a subtropical storm. #SubtropicalStormAndrea was 2019's first named Atlantic storm.(1/10)
Two of the previous three seasons also started earlier than June 1 with subtropical storms that eventually transformed into tropical entities—#TropicalStormAlberto last year and #HurricaneAlex in 2016. Andrea did not take that leap. (2/10)
Subtropical storms are hybrids—drawing on energy that’s partly from low-level temperature contrasts (extratropical style) and partly from the seasonally warming seawater below (tropical style). (3/10)
