Tropical Storm Dolly forms over the north Atlantic

Its maximum sustained winds are 35 miles per hour.

"Since the depression is headed for even cooler waters, continued weakening is expected and Dolly will likely become a remnant low later today", the U.S. National Hurricane Center says.

"A turn toward the northeast with an increase in forward speed is expected tonight and on Wednesday", the NHC said.

"Conditions appear favorable for strengthening for the first 36 h or so, and the depression is expected to strengthen into a tropical storm during that time", meteorologists wrote this morning.

Unlike the previous three storms so far this year, Dolly isn't a threat to the USA or any land and will become non-tropical Wednesday as it moves over much colder ocean water.


"As of June 23rd, 2020 is tied with 2016 for the most named storms by this date", adds Tyler Hamilton, another meteorologist at The Weather Network. It did not pose a threat to any land.

Subtropical storms are a hybrid of a non-tropical and tropical storms, yet are still given a name. According to records from the NHC, the month of June has only produced two other D-named storms: Tropical Storm Debby from 2012 and Tropical Storm Danielle from 2016.

Debby formed over the south-central Gulf of Mexico before slamming into the Big Bend area of Florida on June 26, 2012. Danielle formed in a similar area and was a short-lived tropical storm that developed over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. Hurricane Dorian from 2019 is expected to be retired sometime this year.

It's the second-earliest "D" storm to form in the Atlantic Ocean, going along with forecasters thoughts that the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season will be an active one.

Hurricane season lates from late August through early October.
