Disturbance in Gulf Expected To Bring Major Rain to SWLA

NHC forecasters are also tracking a storm in the Atlantic Ocean, just off the coast of Bermuda. Tropical storm Ana formed May 22. Though that storm poses no threat to Louisiana, it determined the name of the Gulf Coast disturbance, should it become a tropical storm. It's name will be Bill if forecasters upgrade its current category rating.
