T.D. One forms in the Atlantic - no threat to land

According to the National Hurricane Center, the 2009 Hurricane Season has begun (4 days early) with the formation of Tropical Depression 1 about 225 miles offshore from the NC/VA coastline. Wind has reached 35 mph and the storm is moving over the warm Gulf Stream waters under little wind shear, so a minor increase in strength is forecast and the storm is expected to become Tropical Storm Ana later today. Thereafter, the storm will weaken as it moves swiftly into the open Atlantic. I'll be keeping an eye on for tracking hurricanes this season. Check it out if you have an interest in tropical weather. also has a tropical page that will be updated throughout the season as well.

Had my IBISeye iGoogle app minimized, guess it is time to get it running in the full window again.
