Atlantic: Tropical Storm Arthur

Last edited Tue Jul 1, 2014, 07:14 PM - Edit history (1)

Arthur is here and is organizing very quickly. Today it has been stationary, but is expected to start moving N/NW tonight.

This is expected to be a Cat 1 or 2 when it reaches the Cape Fear by Friday morning.

3. Observing the cumu nimbs here now.

NC has become very tropical. The last few years the weather patterns remind me more and more of Puerto Rico. Today I swear I am seeing outer bands already. I really wish the wind would start.
