The 2015 season has just started early. Invest 90L has become better organized The National Hurricane Center has upgraded it to Subtropical Storm Ana. Tropical Storm Watches & Warnings have been issued for portions of the SC & NC coastlines (see graphic below). Winds are forecasted to peak at 50 mph with higher gusts. Ana is expected to make a transition into a pure tropical storm later today.
Ana is stationary and will not move much until late Saturday. The system is sitting over the warm waters of the Gulf Stream and may intensity a bit before weakening as it nears the coast sometime late this weekend. Dry air in the mid-levels of the atmosphere is wrapping into the system keeping it in check. Not going to be a big impact storm, but for early May it is impressive.
We do want to stress again that this will not be a high-impact storm. All residents and interests along the SC/NC coastlines, please pay close attention to this developing weather system as there is strong potential of the system making landfall this weekend.
