Subtropical Storm "Rebekah" formed over the North Atlantic Ocean at 21:00 UTC on October 30, 2019, as the 17th named storm of the 2019 Atlantic Ocean hurricane season.

Rebekah became a named storm at 38.3°N – the farthest north that an Atlantic named storm has formed this late in the calendar year since 1975, according to Dr. Phil Klotzbach.

At 15:00 UTC on October 31, its center was located about 775 km (480 miles) WNW of the Azores. It had maximum sustained winds of 75 km/h (45 mph) and was moving ENE at 30 km/h (18 mph). Its minumum central pressure was 990 hPa.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect but interests in the Azores should monitor the progress of the system, NWS meteorologists said.

An eastward turn with some increase in forward speed is anticipated by early Friday, November 1 and Rebekah should weaken and become a post-tropical cyclone by this evening or early November 1.
