Is ANA Forming? NHC Says Maybe...


That's the question of the day. The NHC put out a "SPECIAL"Tropical Weather Outlook to address the possibility of a subtropical low forming later this week from the non-tropical area of low pressure that will form off the East Coast.

So far the graphics still show nothing going on and AGAIN.. if it forms as a non-tropical low they will not address it in the graphics until the models show it transitioning to Sub-Tropical and if we do go down that road... it's name will be ANA.

A look at the visible satellite image shows the front STALLED OUT over Cuba and the Florida Straits. This is a prime set up for an early before the gun Sub-Tropical System when the water temps are warm and the upper air patterns are willing.

Another view

Water temperatures way above normal for this time of year

That's a lot of orange and red off the North Coast of Cuba and SE coast of Florida.

Let's call it energy available...

And the energy is online...
Social Media
Texts on my phone

A simple search for Hashtag #ANA shows the excitement.

I'll update later this evening.
As I said earlier it still has to form.
Models disagree on timing and forward speed.
The models do agree something is forming

Ps.. The Water Vapor Loop.. 
of course ;)
