Tropical Storm Remains A "Potential Threat"

BWS Tropical Storm Arthur May 19 2020

Arthur skirted the Outer Banks, (with the center located roughly 50 miles east of Cape Hatteras), midday on Monday with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph. The storm's sustained winds remained around 60 miles per hour.

The first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season sent rain over North Carolina Monday and forecasters warned to expect risky surf and rip currents for another day along parts of the U.S. East Coast.

Several days ago, the return of 80° temperatures as early as Tuesday was a seemingly viable proposition. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions, and beachgoers are advised to stay out of the water.

Tropical Storm Arthur continues to spin about off the U.S. East Coast; it is forecast to drift south and east today, eventually bringing rain and wind to Bermuda.

NHC forecasters forecast heavy rain over North Carolina on Sunday night. Risky marine conditions also occurred, with seas building to 8-10 feet, creating treacherous conditions for mariners.

The timing of Arthur coincided with North Carolina's first phase of a reopening strategy amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Tropical Storm Arthur has weakened, but its remnants are expected to pass over the island later this week.

The arrival of Arthur continued a trend of preseason development in recent years.

It's another early start for the Atlantic hurricane season: Arthur formed Saturday in waters off Florida, marking the sixth straight year that a named storm has developed before June 1.

As Tropical Storm Arthur gains strength in the Atlantic, Bermuda's Emergency Measures Organisation is closely monitoring the situation, which it is believed could pose a threat to the island.

The Bermuda Weather Service forecast for today said: "Tropical Storm Arthur will pass to our distant northwest tomorrow before it is then projected to re-curve and possibly pass to our near north as a post-tropical system". The tropical systems form a brick wall in the atmosphere!
