The tropics are into some pre-season action as the National Hurricane Center is monitoring The first storm of the year-- Subtropical Storm Ana northeast of Bermuda.

While the storm would not directly impact the Cape Fear Region, the system could be a rip current generator along the Carolina Coast this weekend. Another area in the western Gulf of Mexico is producing disorganized showers and storms and has low odds of development as it brings heavy rains to the coasts of Texas and Louisiana.
