Arthur downgraded to a ‘post-tropical’ storm

This satellite image made available by NOAA shows Tropical Storm Arthur off the coast of North Carolina on Monday. The storm dropped several inches of rain on parts of eastern North Carolina and flooded roads before moving out to sea away from the state

The remnants of Tropical Storm Arthur are expected to bring winds and rain to the island tonight.The first tropical storm of the year was downgraded to a post-tropical storm yesterday. According to the Bermuda Weather Service forecast yesterday: “It will be accompanied by showery and breezy conditions before it dissipates and exits to our southeast on Thursday with lowering humidity and gradual settling late in the week.”Although storms form outside the window, the hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30. Early forecasts have suggested this year could be busier than average because of near-average trade winds and warmer than usual water temperatures in the Atlantic.
