Ana Weakens Into Post-Tropical Cyclone Moving Out Into The Atlantic
The National Hurricane Center says Ana — the first named storm of the year — will weaken before dissipating on Monday.
Ana has weakened into a post-tropical cyclone as it moves away from Bermuda after bringing rain and wind to the island in the Atlantic Ocean.
Forecasters said Ana was located several hundred miles northeast of Bermuda early Monday morning with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami said in a 1 a.m. advisory that it was moving northeast at 28 mph.
Ana formed as a subtropical storm early Saturday, then transitioned to a tropical storm on Sunday. It then weakened to a depression later in the day.
No watches or warnings were in effect for the storm.
Ana is the first named storm in the Atlantic this year.
It's the seventh straight year a named storm formed before the official start of the season June 1.
