And so we have, "Arthur".
NHC says that more thunderstorm activity has been spotted this morning around the center of circulation along with steady winds of 40 mph (mostly out of Grand Bahama Island), because of this TD#1 has been upgraded to Tropical Storm "Arthur".
The storm is now drifting northwest but it should eventually start moving north as strong upper winds start pulling it that way.
There is still a chance it could become a hurricane as it nears the Mid-Atlantic states by the end of the week.
What does this mean for us:
The following message is from the local NWS office:
THE MAIN CONCERN CONTINUES TO BE THE POSSIBILITY OF URBAN FLOODING ASSOCIATED WITH HEAVY RAINFALL BANDS. THE GREATEST THREAT WILL BE ACROSS THE EAST COAST METRO AREAS.
As of this update, most of the heavy rain remains over Grand Bahama Island, but some of that could arrive here later today. We'll keep you posted.
