TAMPA, Fla. — A non-tropical low-pressure system brewing in the Atlantic has a high chance of developing into the first named storm of the 2021 hurricane season, according to the National Hurricane Center.
NHC says the system has a 70% chance of developing in the next two days and an 90% chance in the next five days.
Ana is the first name on this year's list of storm names.
Hurricane season doesn't officially start until June 1.
If the system does develop into a named storm, it would make this the seventh year in a row with a May storm.
The system does not pose a threat to the U.S.
