Bill and Ana

There's a lot of storm activity out there. We have our second named storm of the season: Bill. There's also a concentrated surface low pressure zone (now Depression #4) in the Gulf of Mexico that has potential of developing. Ana has changed track slightly and is now expected to pass just south of us. Ana will hit the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico as a Tropical Storm (sustained winds <73), and likely continue over Hispaniola and Cuba.


Bill is moving a bit slower, which means two things: it's track could change quite a lot by the time it gets in our neighborhood, and it has more time to gain strength over the ocean. Bill is expected to be the first hurricane of the season, becoming a Category I storm by Tuesday.
