    MIAMI – Tropical Storm Ana has formed over the Atlantic and could strengthen as it heads toward the Leeward Islands, forecasters said Saturday.


    The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Ana could trigger a tropical storm watch for parts of the Leeward Islands later Saturday. It may pick up speed and approach the islands by Monday, the hurricane center said. It was 1,010 miles east of the islands early Saturday.


    Ana, the first named storm of the Atlantic season, could slowly strengthen in the next couple of days as it moves to the west at 16 mph. Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph.

    I really pay attention to the tropical updates! I am watching Ana and hoping she does not turn into a hurricane.

    We have been fortunate so far this season and hope we will continue to be. Of course the season usually doesn't heat up until around this time and into September.
