Tropical storm conditions expected Monday along Outer Banks from Arthur

Tropical Storm Arthur update

If you're thinking of boating in the Atlantic, hazardous marine conditions are expected along the Florida east coast, and gale warnings are in effect in the Bahamas.

It's official: The Atlantic has its first named storm in 2020 and that designation is Arthur.

The Atlantic hurricane season officially begins on June 1 but there have been early-season storms every year since 2015.

"On the forecast track, Arthur will remain well offshore the east coast of Florida, Georgia, and SC today, and then move near or just east of the coast of North Carolina on Monday", the agency said.

Computer model projection for Monday afternoon showing the upper level low over the Midwest and the circulation of Tropical Storm Arthur just off the East Coast. Cars lined up on the mainland side of the bridge waiting to cross over to the islands right at 12:01 a.m. Saturday.

A tropical storm warning was issued for the area early Sunday morning, after the storm's path shifted a bit westward and closer to the Outer Banks, McClatchy News reports.

According to the National Hurricane Center, the tropical depression is moving toward the northeast near 14 miles per hour (22 km/h). It is now a little over 300 miles from Cape Hatteras.


Okulski said Horry County and the Grand Strand area face the greatest chance of bands of showers caused by Tropical Storm Arthur.

The Outer Banks are expected to feel the brunt of the impacts, with heavy rain and tropical-storm force winds expected in the area on Monday, the NWS says.

Those planning to head to the beach before the rain arrives should be aware of the risk of rough surf and strong rip currents.

The AccuWeather RealImpact Scale for Hurricanes will be less than one for Arthur.

But in the immediate sense, it means more unsettled weather for parts of the state, which could mean heavy rainfall and gusty winds across portions of east-central Florida and the northwestern Bahamas through Saturday, the hurricane center said.

Mr Caines added, “Due to Covid-19, the Emergency Measures Organisation has been meeting on a regular basis, and tomorrow as part of our normally scheduled meeting, Tropical Storm Arthur will feature prominently in our discussions.”. Additional organization of the depression is expected into Sunday morning where it is expected to strengthen into a tropical storm.
