We already have a tropical storm in the Atlantic, and not only in the Atlantic but almost right on the east coast!!
Hurricane season is from June 1st to November 30th, and typically we dont really start seeing storms until July and peak in August and Septmeber, as we learned here along the east coast last year
All information on Alberto is in the link above from the National Hurricane Center and the Map below is also from the National Hurricane Center
Typically storms this early , which are rare by the way, are forced well out to sea because of active spring patterns and a lot going on with cold fronts and storm systems, but a ridge over the east, which we would typically see during summer has allowed a system to for just off the SE coast and will basically ride the east coast!! A warmer than normal Atlantic also helps the cause of an early storm
This storm is small and compact storm and will more than likely not bring anymore than some showers and breezy weather to the immediate coast but some models seem to think we get more, and track it NW right into the area, with a ridge overheard this storm can track anywhere as there’s no real steering for it to follow, so we have a now casting situation
Projected tracks from models
Now we watch and see what happens, because a glancing blow is expected but a slight chance it could be a bit more than that, especially along the immediate coastline
