2021-05-23T01:46:35.454Z

The cyclone season in the Atlantic, which runs from June 1 to November 30, has not yet officially started, but the first storm of the year has already been named. It is expected to weaken in the coming days and not make landfall.



The National Hurricane Center (NHC) reported this Saturday that the first storm of the year was formed in the Atlantic:

Ana.

The phenomenon is located near the Bermuda Islands, it will be short-lived and with little effect on land.

Ana is a subtropical storm and formed

11 days before the official start of the

Atlantic cyclone season, which runs from June 1 to November 30.

The storm was located this Saturday morning about 175 miles (280 km) northeast of Bermuda, was moving at

3 miles per hour

(6 km / h) in a west-southwest direction and had maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour (75 km / h).

The NHC issued a tropical storm watch advisory for Bermuda, which is British territory, but later suspended it.

The storm will maintain a slow and erratic trajectory throughout the day and a

gradual weakening

is expected

between tonight and Sunday.

In a couple of days, Ana is expected to dissipate.

How to prepare for a hurricane?

As for the low-pressure system that emerged in the Gulf of Mexico on Friday, the NHC said surface observations and radar data show it has moved inland over southeast Texas.

Therefore, the formation of a tropical cyclone is not expected, but the system can produce heavy rains over parts of southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana.

Given the complete saturation of the soils from the flooding that is occurring along the coastal areas of Texas and Louisiana, these rains can cause additional flash floods.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), on which the NHC depends,

the hurricane season in the Atlantic will be less intense than that of 2020,

but

more active than normal.

NOAA forecasts the formation of 13 to 20 named tropical storms and 6 to 10 hurricanes, of which 3 to 5 would be major category (3, 4 and 5 on the Saffir-Simpson scale).

This Atlantic hurricane season will have activity

"above normal",

although it is not expected to be similar to that of 2020, which broke all-time records.
