Ana Continues to Weaken Over the Open Atlantic

| May 23, 2021 @ 10:06 am

Subtropical Storm Ana, the first named storm of the 2021 Atlantic season, is barely hanging on this morning to the northeast of Bermuda.

Top winds are 40 mph, but the storm has now lost all of its deep convection.

It is over cool water (20C), and remember it needs about 26C to maintain intensity or strengthen.

There is lots of dry air around it that is having to fight as well, and increasingly, strong wind shear will kill any attempts at building back thunderstorms.

Ana should weaken to a wave by Monday morning as it continues accelerating to the northeast.
