A developing low off Bahamas is threatening to produce the first major storm in the 2020 North Atlantic hurricane season. It appears that this storm that will be called Arthur if it does reach tropical storm formation is heading in an South westerly direction and could impact Ireland later next week, possibly as early as next Friday.
The hurricane season doesn't officially get underway until the 1st June and runs until the end of November.
All indications suggest that the upcoming hurricane season looks set to be an active one. Some forecasters are even predicting an "extremely active" season with up to 9 or more named hurricanes possible between now and the conclusion of hurricane season 2020.
Something to keep in track over the coming days that's for sure.
I can't post links as I don't have a pc so anyone that can post up to date charts will be most appreciated.
