Atlantic Ocean

Tropical Storm 01L (Arthur)

What the computer models are showing

Close-in wind currents associated with this tropical cyclone

Arthur is moving toward the north-northeast near 10 mph. A turn toward the northeast with an increase in forward speed is forecast to occur on Monday. A turn toward the east is expected Tuesday. On the forecast track, the center of Arthur will remain well offshore of the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina overnight, and then move near or just east of the coast of North Carolina on Monday. Arthur is forecast to turn away from the east coast of the United States Monday night and Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph with higher gusts. Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours. Arthur is likely to lose tropical characteristics Tuesday night and Wednesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles from the center.

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

WIND: Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area by on Monday.

RAINFALL: Arthur is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 1 to 3 inches over coastal North Carolina tonight and Monday, with locally higher amounts.

SURF: Swells generated by Arthur are affecting portions of the southeast U.S. coast and are expected to spread northward along the U.S. mid-Atlantic coast during the next day or two. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions across much of the U.S. southeast and mid-Atlantic coasts.
