Tropical Storm Ernesto formed Thursday afternoon (Aug. 16), shedding its subtropical status as the weather system headed northeast toward Ireland and the United Kingdom, the National Hurricane Center reported. At 4 p.m., the center of Tropical Storm Ernesto was 645 miles east-southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland, in the North Atlantic, posing no threat to land. Ernesto was moving toward the northeast near 18 mph, and faster northeastward to east-northeastward motion was expected during the next two days, the Hurricane Center reported. Maximum sustained winds were 45 mph with higher gusts. Although Ernesto was expected to become a post-tropical cyclone Thursday night or early Friday, some strengthening was possible during the next 24 hours, the Hurricane Center said. Little change was expected late Friday through Saturday before the post-tropical cyclone merges with a frontal zone near Ireland and the U.K. Tropical storm force winds extended outward up to 160 miles mainly to the east and southeast of the center. Tropical storms have warmer core temperatures than subtropical storms.
