Tropical Storm 01L (Arthur)
The storm is moving toward the north-northeast near 13 mph and this motion should continue during the next day or so. After that time, a faster northeastward motion is expected.
On the forecast track, the depression is expected to move offshore, although parallel to the coast of Florida tonight, and then move near or east of the coast of North Carolina Monday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph with higher gusts.
Gradual strengthening is forecast, and the depression is expected to become a tropical storm Sunday.
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND WIND: Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area by on Monday.
RAINFALL: The depression is expected to produce additional rain accumulations of 1 to 2 inches over the central and northwest Bahamas, and generally less than 1 inch over south Florida through tonight. The depression is also expected to produce total rain accumulations of 1 to 2 inches over coastal North Carolina Sunday night and Monday.
SURF: Swells generated by the depression are affecting portions of the east coast of central and northern Florida. These swells are expected to spread northward during the next few days, and could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions across much of the U.S. southeast and mid-Atlantic coasts.
