UPDATED at 11PM:
The system southwest of Bermuda has been upgraded by the NHC to Subtropical Storm Ana with sustained winds of 35knots and a central pressure of 1002mb. Movement is to the east southeast at 9knots and some slight intensification is expected in the next 12 to 24 hours.
Cyclone southwest of Bermuda continues to organize so I thought that I'd copy my earlier post to a new main article. NHC has issued a Special Tropical Disturbance Statement and NRL Monterey has started Invest 90L on this system. Center continues to drift southeast and most of the models continue an east or southeast motion. Convection continues to wrap around the center and convective bands are starting to organize. Potential for a Subtropical Storm within the next 24 hours - first name on the list this year is Ana. Center located at 31.7N 67.3W at 21/00Z.
My earlier comments:
Atlantic gale center (1004mb) west of Bermuda at 32N 67.5W at 21/18Z continues to remain well organized as it drifts to the southeast. Excellent convection in the northeast quadrant continues to fire and now extends to the core. System should begin a slow movement to the east and Bermuda will likely experience some heavy weather in the next 24-36 hours. Bermuda weather conditions are available at:
The gale center is now fully detached from the parent synoptic system well to its north and east. System has excellent symmetry and shows signs of acquiring some subtropical characteristics - rather remarkable since the water temperature is about 20C. April tropical/subtropical systems are quite rare, but at least this gives us something early to watch.
I guess its time to dust off some of the tropical links.
