Friday evening First To Know Tropics check (06/02/2023)

Tropical Storm Arlene is a marginal tropical system late Friday afternoon, battling the effects of dry air and fast upper-level winds as it parallels the Florida west coast.

Arlene's peak winds are at 40 mph Friday afternoon. The storm is forecast to keep moving south-southeast through the weekend as it weakens into a depression and eventually a leftover low, meaning that there is no expectation for the core of disturbance to cross over land in the Big Bend or nearby areas.

No advisories or watches are in effect for the Big Bend area.
