Although it is only May 1st the tropics may already be getting active with the chance for a subtropical or possibly tropical system developing during the middle of next week off the US coast. If this does occur and where the storm tracks is unknown at this point but it is worth keeping an eye on. Overall the tropical season is forecast to be slightly below average but once again time will tell. More info on the early chance for a storm can be found at this link: http://www.wunderground.com/blog/JeffMasters/comment.html?entrynum=2970
