Hurricane season has started and the new tropical hurricane storm Arthur is making its way up the coast and should hit between July second and fifth.
The first tropical storm of the 2014 hurricane season has formed off the east coast of Florida, and will makes its way up north between now and fourth of July. It is the latest first tropical storm, in any given season, to form in the Atlantic since 2004. Think about that!
Arthur is predicted to make way up the southeast coast over the next two days, strengthening as it heads up north. The National Hurricane Center predicts Arthur will reach category one early Friday, July fourth, when it goes north from the North Carolina Outer Banks to offshore the Delmarva, Peninsula.
As of July first, the storm is currently 70 miles east of Vero Beach, Florida, and about 70 miles north of Freeport, Bahamas. So far Arthur has been building up slowly. But conditions look like it will be a slow strengthening storm with multiple aircrafts flying into the storm today.
