Ana's circulation has raced west of the convection, it's looking horrible this morning, may be downgraded... again.

Here's something to ponder. Let's say, hypothetically, that Anna makes it to GOM and is able to intensify to hurricane status. Maybe even curve off to the East/NE while in the GOM. Then Bill comes along and heads for the east coast. Florida, Gerogia, SC gets hit with two hurricanes at or about the same time, one from the west and one from the east. What a nightmare!

I guess it's interesting to think of this type of scenario, but it is VERY unlikely. Storms just don't do well in proximity to other storms. Plus you are postulating some sort of steering current that could steer one to the north east and the other near it to the northwest which also is not very likely. IF Ana gets into the Gulf with Bill following behind, Ana would not be likely to recurve back towards Bill and if it did, one system would destroy or at least severely weaken the other. Any situation that would curve Ana to the east, would also likely curve Bill to the east as well.
