Swells created by Arthur are already affecting parts of the "southeast USA coast and are expected to spread northward from Florida to the mid-Atlantic states over the next few days", according to the National Hurricane Center.

It's another early start for the Atlantic hurricane season: Arthur formed Saturday in waters off Florida, marking the sixth straight year that a named storm has developed before June 1.

Tropical Storm Arthur is located 345 miles south-southwest of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and is moving to the north-northeast at 9 mph (15 km/h).

Arthur fashioned about two weeks earlier than the hurricane season formally begins on June 1.

By Tuesday Arthur is forecast to weaken to a non-tropical low-pressure system off the mid-Atlantic coast. These swells are expected to spread northward during the next few days, and could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions across much of the US southeast and mid-Atlantic coasts.

Tropical storm conditions will be possible in those areas on Monday, forecasters said.

Okulski said Horry County and the Grand Strand area face the greatest chance of bands of showers caused by Tropical Storm Arthur. Tropical Storm Alberto in 2018 was a deadly exception, hitting 65 miles per hour winds and killing 18 people in Cuba and the U.S.

The storm is expected to track more to the northeast today and increase its speed.
