Remember that tropical depression that died a few days ago?
Now it’s Tropical Storm Ana. And, of course, it’s aiming toward South Florida.
I told you, the tropics are full of surprises.
At 5 a.m. today, Ana was 1,010 miles east of the Leeward Islands with sustained winds of 40 mph. It was moving west at 16 mph.
If the current forecast holds, Ana would approach this region on Wednesday. Potentially, it could be a hurricane or a strong tropical storm with 70 mph winds.
The forecast track hints at a curve to the north before reaching this area. However, at this point nothing is certain.
The track likely will shift over the next few days and, bottom line, we need to watch it closely.
As for the strong wave in the eastern Atlantic, expect it to grow into Tropical Depression 3 today and then, likely, Tropical Storm Bill.
Models continue to point this system toward the Lesser Antilles and possibly the U.S. coastline.
