Swells generated by Arthur are expected to affect portions of the mid-Atlantic and southeast USA coasts during the next day or two.
The Bermuda Weather Service said Tropical Storm Arthur will pass to the "distant northwest" of Bermuda today before it curved sharply and headed back towards the island later Wednesday into Thursday.
Heavy rains that started on Sunday night continued throughout the day, although wind gusts began to diminish as Arthur started to move away from the Outer Banks on Monday afternoon.
The latest forecast from the U.S. National Hurricane Center said, "At 500 AM EDT [0900 UTC], the center of Tropical Storm Arthur was located near latitude 37.0 North, longitude 70.6 West. Arthur is moving toward the east-northeast near 15 miles per hour [24 km/h]".
A lot of these out-of-season storms are weak fleeting ones that meteorologists can see now because of satellites and better technology and would have been missed in earlier times, Klotzbach said. (NOAA via AP) A tropical storm warning was discontinued south of Ocracoke Inlet but remained in effect from the inlet to Duck, including Pamlico and Albemarle sounds.
Arthur moved away from the US on Monday and continued on that path on Tuesday. The hurricane center said Arthur had morphed into an extratropical low and had a warm front extending northeastward from the circulation. Any remaining storms weren't around the center of circulation but instead along the front.
The remnants of Arthur is then expected to recurve to the east then south and then passes nearby late tomorrow.
Arthur's winds were at 60 miles per hour. Ultimately, it is also forecast to dissipate by the end of the week.
The first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season sent rain over North Carolina Monday and forecasters warned to expect risky surf and rip currents for another day along parts of the U.S. East Coast.
Although storms form outside the window, the hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30.
