Gabrielle was declared a Subtropical Storm by the National Hurricane Center late in the day on 07 September 2007, and reached Tropical Storm status in the western Atlantic Ocean on 08 September. While some convection was associated with Gabrielle, GOES-12 IR imagery from the CIMSS Tropical Cyclones site (above) indicated that the convection was located well to the northwest of the circulation center; GOES-12 visible imagery (below) showed that the circulation center of Gabrielle remained exposed during much of the day.
