The first Atlantic storm of the season has formed.

At 11 a.m. Monday Subtropical Depression One was about 890 miles west-southwest of the Azores.

It is moving to the north, northeast near 8 mph.

Maximum sustained winds were clocked near 35 mph.

It’s expected to become absorbed by a large extratropical low on Thursday, according to the National Hurricane Center.

It is not a threat to land, and not expected to threaten anyone, but if it does get a name it would be the first April-named storm since 2003.

Hurricane Season begins June 1.
