First Named Storm of Season Could Bring Rain to Philadelphia

Tropical Storm Arthur has formed off the coast of Florida.

On Tuesday Tropical Storm Arthur became the first named storm to form in the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season, and it’s headed up the East Coast.

Fortunately, Arthur is expected to stay out to sea. But, especially if it’s closer to the western edge of that possible track in the model, it could bring a lot of rain. Here’s the main issue with our region: Arthur is expected to become a hurricane at 8 a.m. on Friday off the coast of North Carolina. Your three-day holiday weekend might get rained on a bit.


Like in 2013, forecasters expect a quiet 2014 tropical cyclone season. Hopefully this first one won't rain on 4th of July fireworks celebrations.

    having earned $4151 this last four weeks… Its the most-financialy rewarding I’ve

    had. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it
