Tropical Storm Arthur first Canadian Hurricane Centre statement

8:45 AM ADT Wednesday 02 July 2014
Tropical cyclone information statement for:

For tropical storm Arthur.

The next statement will be issued by 3:00 PM ADT.

Tropical storm Arthur east of Florida forecast to parallel the U.S. East Coast as a hurricane this week - may play a role in Atlantic Canada weather this weekend.
We are analysing the development of tropical storm Arthur and latest computer model forecasts to gain an early indication of how the storm may affect weather in Atlantic Canada this weekend. The tropical storm is expected to intensify to hurricane strength tonight as it moves slowly northeastward not far off the U.S. East Coast. A trough of low pressure will be moving eastward from the Great Lakes, guiding Arthur toward Atlantic Canada. The nature of the trough approaching from the Great Lakes will make all the difference in Arthur's intensity, track and structure as it moves toward our region. Scenarios range from a direct effect with wind and rain to a well-offshore track with perhaps just rain from the trough, drawing moisture from the tropical system.

Our first full forecast package will be issued this afternoon around 3 PM ADT.
