Dry air, cool water and high upper level winds have hindered pure tropical low pressure systems only to favor types of storms that resemble mid-latitude or extratropical storms.

Tropical storm-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from the storm's center. The late summer and early fall is considered the better time-frame for tropical storms to develop. A faster northeastward motion is forecast to occur on Thursday and Friday. Also, subtropical storms are cold-core weather systems, while tropical storms and hurricanes are warm-core. Even though the outlook has been adjusted to lower numbers, we haven't reached the peak of the Hurricane Season.
