A large area of High Pressure will gradually sink southward from Canada, bringing cool and dry air to New England for the next few days. It will also help to block Tropical Storm Arthur from moving north and unsettled weather in the central US to move east.
TROPICAL STORM ARTHUR
Although the Atlantic Hurricane Season doesn’t officially start until June 1, we have our first tropical storm of the season–Arthur. Tropical Storm Arthur formed Sunday off the Florida coastline.
Arthur is northeast of the Outer Banks as of 11pm Monday, bringing heavy rain and rough surf conditions to the North Carolina shore.
On Tuesday, Arthur is expected to stop its forward progress northward and move east into the Atlantic as upper-level winds steer it away from the United States. In this scenario, we’ll see persistent east and southeast winds, which will build up the surf here in Southern New England.
