Subtropical storm Andrea first named of the season

The third weather disturbance of the season has turned into a named storm after officials spotted the system off the coast of Bermuda Monday.

The subtropical storm named Andrea, is located approximately 300 miles southwest of Bermuda and is not expected to develop more over the next five days. According to the National Hurricane Center, there is no coastal warnings or watches in effect regarding the storm, however, they say they will continue to monitor Andrea.

They report Andrea is slowly moving toward Bermuda at 9 km/h (6 mph) with an anticipated turn toward the northeast by this afternoon. By Wednesday, Andrea is expected to take another turn northeast and remain south-southwest of Bermurda for a day or two before dissipating.

The Atlantic hurricane season does not officially begin until June 1, however, the National Hurricane Center says they issue weather outlooks during the off-season as conditions warrant.

Andrea is the third weather system of the season, but the first named storm.
