Tropical Storm Arthur Picks Up Speed

 

MIAMI, Florida -- As of 2 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Saturday, June 28, 2014, NOAA's National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida, has issued a tropical weather outlook due to the presence of a broad low pressure system that is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms off the coasts of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.



NOAA says that environmental conditions are expected to remain conducive for gradual development of this system while it drifts southward of the coast of Georgia and Florida during the next few days.


NOAA forecasts that development of this system, if any, has a medium chance (50%) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours and a high (60%) chance within the next 5 days.


Tropical cyclone formation off the east coast of Florida is historically unusual for June as most tropical storms and hurricanes typically originate from the southern Caribbean this time of year.


If the system develops into a tropical storm or hurricane, the first name for the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane season is Arthur.


Here is the list of the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane Names:
