Adrián Martínez Ortega of the State Coordination of Civil Protection (Coeproc), has been monitoring the subtropical depression which, he says, presents no danger to Quintana Roo.

Tropical Depression One in the far central Atlantic Ocean continues to look very disorganized and weak, and the characteristics that make this storm even mentionable remain questionable this afternoon.

As of 11 a.m. Thursday, the storm was spotted 730 miles west of the Azores with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The system has migrated from part tropical and part subtropical to a fully tropical system.

While the system is projected to drift toward the north, it will not be a threat to land. The NHC said thunderstorms around the center become more symmetric.

The Atlantic Hurricane Season doesn't officially start until June 1.

Subtropical Depression One has transitioned into a tropical depression. Forecasters said no more strengthening is expected, and the depression should be absorbed by an extratropical low in a day or so. The first name on the list for tropical storms for this year is Arlene.
