The National Hurricane Center has named the first storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, precisely one week before the season is expected to begin on June 1.

Currently spinning off of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, forecasters named the subtropical storm “Alberto,” which is the first of 21 names the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has on its list of possible storm names for the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season.

On Friday, Alberto met the minimum requirements for earning a name, having reached sustained winds of 40 miles per hour.
