Claudette and Ana Say Goodbye

The NHC has officially stopped concerning themselves with both Claudette and Ana.  Claudette is understandable as it has made landfall and dissipated.  Ana is a little more interesting.  It barely reached tropical storm status a few days ago and, as a result, became the first named storm of the season.  It has since slowly weakened to the point where the closed circulation is no longer detectable.  From the 5PM NHC discussion of Ana:

AN AIR FORCE RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT INVESTIGATED ANA THIS AFTERNOON AND DID NOT FIND A CLOSED WIND CIRCULATION. CONSEQUENTLY…ANA IS NO LONGER A TROPICAL CYCLONE AND THIS WILL BE THE LAST ADVISORY ON THIS SYSTEM UNLESS REGENERATION OCCURS.

So, Hurricane Bill is the only storm in the Atlantic right now.  It does appear it will become a “major” hurricane in a couple days, but it should not affect any land masses until potentially interacting with Bermuda at the end of the week.  Of course, if you live in Bermuda, this is a major concern worth watching over the next couple days.  Here’s a satellite image of Bill that should update over time:
