The first named storm of the season, Tropical Storm Alex, has moved away from the Southeast United States, but the swell from this system will create an increased threat of dangerous rip currents along the Outer Banks at least through mid week, the National Weather Service reports.

By Tuesday, Alex will be hundreds of miles off New England as it heads northeast.

There are no other storms systems in the Atlantic at this time.
