Development potential increasing for our first tropical disturbance

Published: Updated:

A non-tropical area of low pressure has developed about 600 miles east-southeast of Bermuda. The system is expected to move over warmer waters on Friday and will likely become a short-lived subtropical cyclone.

By this weekend, the low will push out to sea and is no threat to the state of Florida. The National Hurricane Center is giving it a 90% chance of development over the next five days.

The first storm name on the list is Ana (pronounced AH-nah). Remember, the official start to the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season is June 1st.
