Tropical Storm Arthur kicks off an early start to the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane season
Arthur is first named storm of the year forms off the east coast
For five years straight now, the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season is getting a head start of its normal June 1st starting date.
Tropical Storm Arthur formed with a closed low off of the eastern Florida late Saturday evening. The storm is moving NNE at 9 mph, sliding up the eastern coastline of the US.
Arthur will approach the Carolinas bringing a strong rip tide and some elevated waves and heavy rain.
However, after that, current guidance is looking to weaken in the Atlantic near the New England coastline as a stronger low-pressure storm in the Mid-Atlantic will rob the storm’s energy by the end of the week.
