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. 

From AccuWeather:

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

  1. I hope the storms stay away from FL.

  2. Again.. I wish you luck.. I know how it is down there.. It looks like Claudette is going to brush past where I used to live.. or fairly close.. if it swings just a bit east it would get Hudson, New Port Richey area..
