Hurricane season starts today (June 1) and storms are right on time as the National Weather Service is reporting a potential for a tropical development off the southeast coast late this weekend and early next week. 

Although there is still a lot of uncertainty, the National Hurricane Center is monitoring this closely and currently predicts an 80% probability of formation into a tropical depression.

But until then, the NWS is warning of increased rip currents and rough surf possible for the East Coast.
