A pre official hurricane season storm would be named Ana

Posted By on May 6, 2015

I usually don’t start monitoring the Atlantic hurricane season until it “officially begins June 1,” but this year there is a early “sub-tropical” depression ignoring the calendar.

There’s a 40 percent chance the Atlantic may churn out the season’s first storm along the U.S. East Coast by May 10, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami. If a storm forms, it will likely be a subtropical system, a sort of hybrid between a regular storm and a true tropical one.

An area of low pressure is moving off North America into the warm ocean waters off Florida, and the combination of the two may provide the building blocks for what would be named Ana.
