Keith Tropical Storm. SubTD#1?
04:50 PM EDT - 04 October 2000
Ok, here's a new curveball I just didn't know about. The NHC tracking "subtropical" depressions. Or what it's calling the thing off the Florida East Coast near Daytona Beach. A Subtropical system has a much larger windfield than a normal tropical system, and sometimes they can form into tropical systems. This is new to me (the fact that the Hurricane Center calls it this), so comments on it are welcome. Anyway "Sub Tropical Depression #1" has formed off the Florida East Coast and more will come later on it. (It plays havoc with the automated code here though, overjoy)
Keith has reformed into a Tropical Storm and will remain that way as it enters the Mexican Coastline...
More will come later.
