A storm system in the north central Atlantic is getting stronger. The National Hurricane Center in Miami says Subtropical Depression Five has grown into Subtropical Storm Ernesto.
The system has maximum sustained winds of 40 miles-per-hour and is moving in a northerly direction at eight miles-per-hour. Forecasters say Ernesto could get stronger in the next 24 hours, but the storm is expected to weaken tomorrow night or early Friday.
Right now, Ernesto is about 695 miles southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland and is not threatening any land.
