Hurricane season doesn't officially start until June 1, but there's already activity brewing in the Atlantic. Subtropical Storm Andrea formed Monday evening in the Western Atlantic.

This is the first subtropical storm of the season and has maximum sustained wind of 40 miles per hour, with wind from this system extending 70 miles from its center.

This storm is expected to remain southwest or south of Bermuda during the next day or two, with a decrease in its forward speed and a turn to the northeast on Tuesday, followed by movement to the east on Tuesday night.

Eventually, the storm is forecast to dissipate on Wednesday, but this activity could be a sign that the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season could be a busy one. The official 2019 Hurricane Outlook will be issued by NOAA on May 23.
