Ana and Bill

Below is Tropical Storm Ana. This satellite will update when you hit refresh. Right now you can see that the main area of thunderstorms is east if Ana's circulation. As long as this continues Ana will have a hard time developing. Long range models differ on the placement of Ana early next week with some moving Ana out into the Atlantic and others sending her into the Gulf of Mexico. We will continue to monitor Ana closely over the next few days. An average position puts her over south Florida early next week.

Ana is No More

The satellite loop below is of Tropical Storm Bill. Long range computer models still hint at Bill being a major hurricane by Wednesday of next week with winds over 125 mph. Average position for Bill next week is moving towards the Florida Straight. To get an updated loop hit refresh with each new visit.

We will watch both systems closely but it appears Bill has a greater chance of becoming a serious threat to the US Mainland. Stay tuned for the latest information.
