UPDATE 5/23/21 11 PM EDT:

Ana has now become post tropical as it quickly moves to the northeast at 28 mph. Convection is non-existent as it continues to move into a harsh environment. This will be the last update on Ana.

UPDATE 5/23/21 5 PM EDT:

Tropical Storm Ana has now been downgraded to a tropical depression. Maximum sustained wind is now at 35 mph and its forward speed has increased to 17 mph. It continues to move northeast into colder water. Increased wind shear and dry air in the mid levels of the atmosphere will also contribute to Ana's dissipation which is expected to occur sometime Monday. The good news is Ana will not impact any land areas as it moves through the Northern Atlantic.

UPDATE 5/23/21 5 AM EDT:

Ana is now a tropical storm. It made the transition from subtropical status Sunday morning after more convection began firing around the center and forming a "warm core". The storm will continue to race northeast and is expected to weaken early this week.

FOX 4 CHIEF METEOROLOGIST DEREK BEASLEY

UPDATE 5/22/21 11 PM EDT:

Subtropical Storm Ana strengthened a bit over the past 6 hours with maximum sustained wind of 45 mph. It continues to move to the northeast at 9 mph which is faster than the previous advisory. As Ana moves into colder water, higher wind shear, and drier conditions, it will weaken and is expected to dissipate sometime Monday.

FOX 4 METEOROLOGIST ERIC STONE

UPDATE 5/22/21 5 PM EDT:

Subtropical Storm Ana has now started moving toward the northeast. Previously Ana was moving to the west at 3 mph, but is now moving NE at 5 mph. Maximum sustained wind remains at 40 mph and is not expected to increase any further. Tropical storm wind extends only 60 miles from the center of Ana. Ana is expected to weaken and dissipate over the next couple days as it moves into colder water and an area of strong wind shear and dry air. Ana will not threaten any land.

FOX 4 METEOROLOGIST ERIC STONE

UPDATE 5/22/21 8 AM EDT:
Ana shows little change in strength, but gradual weakening is expected tonight and Sunday. Ana is expected to dissipate in a couple of days and poses no threat to land. Winds of 40 mph extend outward from the storm.

UPDATE 5/22/21 5 AM EDT:

Subtropical Storm Ana developed in the Atlantic early this morning making it the first named storm of the season. The storm is moving through the Atlantic and is expected to continue on its path Sunday and Monday. Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph with higher gusts. The system is expected to weaken over the next several days and poses no threat to land. However, the official start to hurricane season isn't until June 1st and early development like Ana is a good reminder to get your hurricane plan ready.

FOX 4 FORECASTER LAUREN PETRELLI

UPDATE 5/21/21 8 AM EDT:

NHC keeps HIGH chances for development in the next 5 days of Invest 90L in the Atlantic. The system this morning looks more organized and advisories could be issued as early as Friday afternoon or Friday night.

CHIEF METEOROLOGIST DEREK BEASLEY

UPDATE 5/20/21 8 PM EDT:

NHC still has high chances for development for Invest 90L in the Atlantic. The extratropical low will drift southwest toward Bermuda where it could acquire subtropical characteristics before lifting northeast by later this weekend, encountering a more hostile environment. A Tropical Storm Watch is now in effect for Bermuda in anticipation of tropical storm conditions as the storm approaches.

CHIEF METEOROLOGIST DEREK BEASLEY

UPDATE 5/20/21 8 AM EDT:

NHC has increased the chance for development to 90% or HIGH in the next 5 days for an area of low pressure just northeast of Bermuda. This low pressure is known as EXTRATROPICAL INVEST 90L, the first Atlantic Invest of the season. Forecast models call for a northward then westward track then as the upper-level westerly winds increase, the storm will be taken northeast deep into the North Atlantic. The system will track west into a more favorable environment through the first part of the weekend. After Sunday, the environment becomes more hostile and the window will close on any potential development or organization.

CHIEF METEOROLOGIST DEREK BEASLEY

FIRST UPDATE 5/19/21 2PM EDT:

NHC is monitoring an area of disturbed weather northeast of Bermuda that has a chance to develop into the first tropical cyclone of the season. The first name on the list is Ana. Right now the latest thinking is that this area of disturbed weather will track southwest into warmer water, with a small window of opportunity for possible development later in the week.

Conditions are expected to become unfavorable for development by this weekend, so for it to have a chance, development needs to occur quickly.
