(RNN) – Sustained winds for Tropical Storm Arthur increased overnight to 60 mph, and the storm was expected to become a hurricane as early as Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.
At 5 a.m. ET, the storm was moving north at 6 mph and was located 90 miles east-southeast of Cape Canaveral, FL, according to the NWS.
New watches were issued with the 5 a.m. advisory. A hurricane watch was issued Wednesday morning from Bogue Inlet, NC, to Oregon Inlet, NC. The watch includes Pamlico Sound.
A tropical storm watch was placed in effect from South Santee River, SC, to south of Bogue Inlet, NC, and from north of Oregon Inlet to the North Carolina/Virginia border. This storm watch includes Eastern Albemarle Sound.
In Florida, a tropical storm watch remained in effect from Sebastian Inlet to Flagler Beach.
Arthur was expected to strengthen into a weak hurricane off the East Coast before becoming an extra-tropical system near Nova Scotia.
Arthur was the first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season. A tropical storm is a system of winds between 39 mph and 73 mph.
The storm’s current predictive track calls for the storm to turn generally northward before taking a turn northeast, making its way up the Atlantic coast through the week as it gains strength and speed.
