Could Arthur spoil the Holiday Weekend in the Carolinas?

Posted: Monday, June 30, 2014 7:55 pm | Updated: 9:50 am, Tue Jul 1, 2014.

A slowly developing low pressure area  (AL 91) located 125 miles east of Melbourne, Fla., is being given an 80 percent of developing into a tropical depression or tropical storm during the coming 24 to 48 hours. Although the low is currently drifting in a southwest to westerly direction, it should turn northeast during the next couple of days and head towards the coasts of South Carolina and North Carolina.

If the system does develop, it would be first named storm of the 2014 season. Currently, intensity forecast models are suggesting that either the South Carolina or North Carolina coast will have to face a tropical storm during the July 4 holiday weekend.
