The Hurricane Center issued an advisory on Wednesday afternoon for Subtropical Storm Alex.


It is no threat to Florida or the United States.

Alex, packing 50 mph winds, is located about 785 miles south, southwest of the Azores and is moving toward the northeast at 14 mph.

Alex is expected to become an extratopical cyclone before reaching the Azores on Friday.
