It is not even Hurricane Season yet (that starts June 1), and we have our first named storm in the Atlantic. Tropical Storm Arthur is about 200 miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras, NC. The storm may end up skirting the NC coast or stay in the Atlantic on Monday. However the storm is quite large that outer rainbands may arrive in our area on Monday. If they do, we will only pick up a trace of rain. Most of the impact will be in North Carolina where they could see 1-3" of rain.

Clouds and cooler weather will stick around because of the east wind provided from Arthur. Temps will roll in about 5 degrees cooler than normal and continue to drop for the next 3 days.


Tropical storm force winds will NOT arrive in our area, but it does turn breezy on Monday. Winds go a little higher on Tuesday as the storm moves away from Maryland opening the path another area of low pressure to get a bit closer. Winds on Tuesday could range from 15-25 mph with gusts near 30-35 mph. Look for lighter winds and warmer weather by next weekend!
