WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Hurricane season doesn't officially begin until June 1, but things in the Atlantic are already heating up.

A non-tropical low has developed east-southeast of Bermuda and may become subtropical storm Ana by tomorrow. It has a 50% chance of formation over the next two days and 80% over the next five days.

It might bring some heavy rains and gusty winds to Bermuda, but Sunday-Monday it pushes out to sea.
