Tropical Depression Ana – Ana continues to weaken as it moves farther inland. This is the last advisory from the National Hurricane Center about Ana.

5:00 PM EDT Sun May 10
Location: 34.4°N 78.6°W
Moving: NNE at 8 mph
Min pressure: 1007 mb
Max sustained: 35 mph

Tracking showers and storms as we begin the work week….Ana is now a tropical depression. That means, as Ana continues moving farther inland, it will continue to weaken.  However, we will see a good deal of Ana’s remnant moisture tonight, Monday and into Tuesday.

On Monday, expect mostly cloudy skies.  Rain will be likely for most of the day in an on and off fashion, as Ana’s remnant low churns over the viewing area like a pinwheel.  A few thunderstorms are possible.  And with such rich, tropical moisture in the atmosphere, heavy rain will be likely, capable of producing localized flooding. High temperatures will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s.  More showers and storms are likely Monday night into Tuesday.  In fact, as we move through Tuesday, a few showers and thunderstorms will be possible  as a cold front moves in.  Otherwise, expect partly sunny skies. Highs will warm into the upper 80s and lower 90s ahead of the front Tuesday. Our forecast becomes drier and cooler after the front passes. Highs on Wednesday will be in the low to mid 70s. On Thursday, we’ll be in the upper 60s.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Chance of Showers and Storms (30%). Low temperatures in the mid and upper 60s. Winds: SE 10-15 mph.

Monday: Mostly Cloudy. Showers and Storms Likely (80%). High temperatures in the upper 70s. Winds: SE 10-15 mph.

Tuesday: Partly Sunny. Chance of Showers and Storms (30%). Hot and Humid. High temperatures in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Winds: SW 10-15 mph.
