Arthur is expected to strengthened over the next several days to maximum winds of 60 miles per hour.

Arthur formed off the coast of Florida on Saturday, making it the sixth straight year for a named storm to develop before the official June 1 start of the Atlantic hurricane season.

Arthur was anticipated to accentuate because it moved northeastward away from the East Coast early this week.

The tropical storm is about two weeks earlier than expected, as Atlantic hurricane season doesn't officially begin until June 1.

The hurricane center said Arthur could gain some strength over the next 48 hours before losing its tropical characteristics on Tuesday. They could cause "life-threatening surf and rip current conditions".

The center of Tropical Storm Arthur was located by an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft west of Florida and in the north Bahamas islands.
