Tropical Storm "Arthur" expected to form near Bahamas -- the first of 2020 Atlantic hurricane season

A storm system is expected to form near the Bahamas this weekend, potentially bringing rain and causing rough seas to parts of the Southeast coast into the following week. Once it becomes a storm, it will be named Arthur -- the first of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season.

A surface low near Southern Florida is being monitored for development as it heads away from the coast, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). It has been producing showers and thunderstorms, along with gusty winds, over portions of South Florida and the northwestern region of the Bahamas.

Florida's Middle Keys already took a hit from the system, with more than 127 mm (5 inches) of rain reported, as well as some street flooding on Thursday, May 14. Wind gusts up to 72 km/h (45 mph) were also recorded in Lower Keys in the same period.

Miami and Fort Lauderdale were drenched on Friday, May 15, with almost 51 mm (2 inches) per hour, triggering a flash flood warning for Miami-Dade county.

Tropical Depression One develops

Tropical depression one formed off the east coast of Florida Saturday afternoon.

As forecast, this storm will not have any impacts on Southwest Florida.  This development is significant, however, because it marks the sixth season in a row that an organized storm has developed before June 1st, the start of hurricane season......

..........The official forecast from the National Hurricane Center develops TD One into Tropical Storm Arthur by Sunday morning. From there, it is expected to brush with the Carolina coastline by Monday..........

Hurricane season starting early.  Well, maybe not that early. 

Anyway, prayers up for all in Arthur's path.  Maybe it won't amount to much -- I'm hoping.
