Storm Summary and Projection:
Hurricane Summary POSTED: May 6, 2015 4:51 a.m. Watching the Tropics East of Florida We will continue to monitor an area of low pressure east of Florida during the next few days as it slowly spins northward over marginally warm water. As it moves slowly northward, this system will strengthen and become more organized. Although the system will probably start out as a non-tropical storm, it could acquire subtropical or tropical characteristics tomorrow or on Friday, it would be named Ana should this occur. Regardless of the classification of this system there is the potential for strong gale-force winds and a dangerous, rough surf along the southeastern U.S. coast from Florida northward to the Carolinas later this week and could move inland over parts of South Carolina and North Carolina on Friday. The slow motion of this system could bring heavy and perhaps flooding rainfall to parts of the Carolinas this weekend. Early tropical development is not without precedent; according to Dr. Chris Landsea, science and operations officer of the National Hurricane Center (NHC). During the period from 1851 to 2014, 20 tropical storms and four hurricanes have occurred in the Atlantic Basin during the month of May. Even though a few tropical storms have made U.S, landfall, a hurricane has never made landfall in the U.S. during May. By Senior Meteorologist Michael LeSeney
