Atlantic Basin has very quite active:

An area of low pressure about 80 miles southwest of Tampa, Florida, has been getting better organized during the overnight hours and is being monitored closely for tropical development. It is possible that this low could become a tropical depression later today. Whether or not this low becomes a tropical cyclone, locally heavy rain and gusty winds are possible across Florida and along the Central Gulf Coast over the next few days.

Tropical Storm Ana with top winds of 40 mph and is located 640 miles east-southeast of the Leeward Islands. This is the first named storm of the 2009 Atlantic Hurricane Season.

Tropical storm watches are in effect for the U.S. Virgin Islands, the British Virgin Islands (including Montserrat, Antigua, Barbuda, St. Kitts, Nevis, and Anguilla), as well as the Netherlands Antilles (including St. Maarten, Saba, and St. Eustatius). This means tropical storm conditions are possible in the watch area within 36 hours. Ana is forecast to slightly strengthen as it heads toward the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, and then toward Hispaniola, Cuba, and possibly south Florida. The mountainous terrain of the Greater Antilles (Hispaniola, Puerto Rico, and Cuba) are expected to weaken Ana's circulation as it passes by around midweek. Regardless, these areas need to monitor the progress of Tropical Storms Ana closely.

Tropical Storm Bill the 2nd named storm of the Atlantic Hurricane Season, forming in the Eastern Atlantic on Saturday east of Tropical Storm Ana. Bill is currently located about 905 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands, and has top sustained winds near 40 miles per hour.

Tropical Storm Bill is forecast to move westward through the open tropical Atlantic over the next few days, steadily gaining strength and becoming a hurricane by Monday or Tuesday as it also heads toward the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico.

Bill is forecast to be the much stronger tropical system so all in the Leeward Islands to Puerto Rico and then Southeast United States will want to monitor and check back frequently on the latest on Bill.

A new strong tropical wave and disturbance is coming off the Coast of Africa with very concentrated thunderstorms and showers. This area will need to be monitored for possible development the next few days behind Tropical Storm Bill.
