A Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect from the Alabama / Florida border eastward to the Suwannee River in Florida.
Tropical Storm Bill
Bill is now projected to possibly become the season’s first major hurricane later this week. Projections also now indicate a more northerly track and a possible movement away from the U.S. coastline.
Tropical Depression Ana
Ana weakened into a tropical depression on Sunday as it moved closer to the Caribbean Islands.
At 5 p.m. EDT Sunday, a tropical storm watch is in effect for the Dominican Republic from Cabo Engano westward to Cabo Beata.
A tropical Storm watch remains in effect for Puerto Rico, The U.S. Virgin islands, Montserrat, Antigua, Barbuda, St. Kitts, Nevis, Anguilla, St. Maarten, St. Martin, Saba, St. Eustatius, Guadeloupe and St. Barthelemy.
Ana will skirt the islands of the northern Caribbean early this week, bringing squally weather to those countries. There is still some uncertainty in whether or not Ana will be able re-strengthen before potentially impacting Florida as early as Thursday
