Tropical storm could form before start of Atlantic hurricane season for 6th straight year.

Arthur could develop this weekend north of the Bahamas.

'The Atlantic hurricane season doesn’t officially start until June 1, but the National Hurricane Center is tracking a disturbance off the East Coast that could become a named storm this weekend.

If the storm forms, earning the name Arthur, it will mark the sixth year this has happened before hurricane season.

The weather system might be a harbinger of an active Atlantic hurricane season. Preseason forecasts are almost all predicting a substantially busier than normal season, with one forecast out of Pennsylvania State University calling for one of the stormiest seasons on record.'>>>

1. I hate this time of year

Irma practically killed me and where I live in Central Florida we had 70+ winds. Couldn’t even imagine living on the coast. I did hear they were figuring out how to have safe places for people during the virus. I guess they are going to have separate places for people with virus, without virus, etc. I can see this being a mess. Plus will other states allow for evacuation? And we just thought the virus was a problem. Yieks!
