Subtropical storm Ana to pass Bermuda today

Subtropical Storm Ana – the first named storm of the year – is expected to move past Bermuda today.

The Bermuda Weather Service said at 6am that a Tropical Storm Watch is in force but the system is expected to remain more than 180 miles from the island.

A spokesman added: “While it meets the potential threat criteria, it is projected to move away from the area this afternoon and therefore this will be the only advisory on this system.”

The storm was about 200 miles northeast of the island and moving west-southwest with sustained winds of 46mph and gusts reaching 58mph at 6am.

The system is expected to be at its closest point of approach at about 3pm today, about 187 miles northeast of the island.

The storm is later expected to change course and begin moving away from the island.

Little change in strength is expected today, but the storm is expected to lose power over the next few days.
