Tropical Storm Arlene forms in Atlantic

Even though the Atlantic tropical season does not begin until June 1, this year we have the early formation of Tropical Storm Arlene way out in the central Atlantic Ocean.  It is far from land and not expected to affect anything except shipping routes.   You can read more about it at USA Today here and in the Washington Post here.  It would not surprise me if it were gone by the end of the day.
