By Zoila Palma: Early this morning, the National Hurricane Center informed of the formation of Subtropical storm Ana, the first named storm of the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane season.
This year marks the 7th year in which a named storm has formed before the official start of the season.
A subtropical storm has similar characteristics of a tropical storm but is not considered fully tropical because it doesn’t depend on warm water temperatures to fuel its development.
As of this morning, the center of Subtropical Storm Ana was located about 175 miles to the northeast of Bermuda.
The Bermuda Weather Service discontinued the tropical storm watch that had been issued.
A turn toward the north at a slow forward speed is expected later today, followed by a faster motion toward the northeast Sunday and Monday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts.
Little change in strength is forecast today, but gradual weakening is expected tonight and Sunday. Ana is expected to dissipate in a couple of days.
