Storm Ana

Fri 21 May 2021 12:15
Well. We are stuck in Bermuda with Storm Ana heading in our direction. The start has been postponed again, much to everybody’s relief after an update by weather guru Chris Tibbs. Annoyingly Ana first head closer to Bermuda and is slap bang on our route. It is expected to then drift NE. Extract below from US Hurricane Center. 

So we are trying to get as much out of our Bermuda trip before the heavy rain arrives. Scootered round the island, had an afternoon on the beach, visited a few bars!!

Hoping to leave tomorrow , Saturday but that is dependent on Ana starting to move away. Here is the Hurricane Center info

Atlantic hurricane season could be off to an early start for the seventh straight year with the potential formation of a subtropical storm near Bermuda.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) says a non-tropical low-pressure system located several hundred miles to the east-northeast of Bermuda has a high chance of forming into a subtropical storm Friday or Saturday.

Potential Ana is forecast to be short-lived as it pinwheels west and then southwest in the general direction of Bermuda.

That track could bring Bermuda some bands of rain and gusty winds, but overall, impacts should be minimal. It will not threaten any other land areas during its existence.

A tropical storm watch has been issued for Bermuda, meaning sustained winds of 40 mph are possible as this system sweeps by.

This system should meet its demise as it moves back northeastward into the north Atlantic Ocean later this weekend or early next week.
