Tropical Storm Arthur expected to form today

The first named storm of the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane Season is expected to form later today off Florida, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Tropical Depression 1 formed late Monday night as it crawled off Florida's east coast at 2 mph. The National Hurricane Center’s track shows the storm near North Carolina’s Outer Banks around 2 a.m. Friday as Hurricane Arthur.

At 8 a.m. this morning, the system was nearly stationary, with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph, according to the news-press. At around 9 a.m., it was located about 95 miles southeast of Cape Canaveral. A tropical storm watch has been issued for the east-central Florida coast, from Fort Pierce to just south of Flagler Beach.

The storm is forecast to meander off the coast for a couple of days before moving north/northeast as a developing tropical cyclone.

Tropical Storm Arthur is expected to pass northeastern Florida by Wednesday night and is on track to approach the Carolinas by Thursday night.
