After talking about the tropical wave for over a week, Tropical Storm Ana is finally named by the National Hurricane Center this morning. Ana is moving west near 16mph, and the maximum sustained winds are near 40mph. The storm is located about 900 miles east of the Leeward Islands in the Atlantic.
Do not get bogged down with just Ana alone. Tropical Depression #3 is East of Ana in the Atlantic, and it could be named "Bill" within the next 48 hours. TD3 has had my eye for the past week because nearly every model run in the past week has shown this system being stronger than Ana.
I'll keep you updated this weeked on any new developments. As for now remember Ana and TD3.
