AccuWeather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski said no other tropical development is expected in the Atlantic basin through at least early next week.

The 5-day forecast track of Tropical Storm Lane, as of 11 a.m. today, in the Eastern Pacific.

It will be a subtropical storm and it would be given the next name on the 2018 Atlantic Tropical Season list, which is Ernesto. Only Hurricane Chris in early July was not subtropical at some point in its life cycle this season.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour (65 km/h) with higher gusts.

Ernesto is centered about 695 miles (1,120 kilometers) southeast of Canada's Cape Race, Newfoundland, and is moving north near 8 mph (13 kph). A faster northeastward motion is forecast to occur on Thursday and Friday.

"It's always great when we can take another name off that list without having to worry about any threats to home", said WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams.
