Yes, it's official: Bill is a hurricane now. He reached sustained winds of 75mph (120 km/hr) making him a category one by the Saffir-Simpson scale. He is the first hurricane of the season. You can see in the photo above that Ana is piddly and mostly just rain now. Very cloudy and cool today.
Bill is moving faster WNW at about 22 mph (35 km/hr). I don't get any more information on this guy until the next advisory comes out of the National Hurricane Center at 11 am. That is all. More updates to come on this very busy week!
