ARTHUR leaving eastern seaboard

Tropical Storm ARTHUR passed the Outer Banks yesterday afternoon, and as expected, peeled away to the east, transitioning into a non-tropical low, now around 325 miles east of Cape Hatteras. This will meander around a general south-easterly track for a couple of days producing gale force winds in the south-western Atlantic, before merging with an approaching frontal system and disappearing from our radar.

As with 2019 and 2020, this early storm is likely to precede a period of calm weather before the Atlantic production line fires up.

Stand easy.
