According to the National Hurricane Center, a subtropical storm named Ana formed in the Atlantic Ocean
The hurricane center said in a 5 a.m. advisory that Ana was about 200 miles (320 kilometers) northeast of Bermuda, with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph (75 kph).
Forecasters predicted that the system would continue to move slowly and erratically for a few days before dissipating.
Bermuda was under the umbrella of a tropical storm watch.
Ana is a subtropical storm, according to the hurricane center, because it is "entangled with an upper-level low," but it retains some "tropical characteristics."
Ana was the first named storm in the Atlantic this year, despite the fact that hurricane season does not officially begin until June 1. Meteorologists anticipate a busy 2021 season, but not as crazy as the record-breaking 2020 season.
