The 2012 Hurricane Season is off to an early start, with Tropical Storm Alberto — the first named storm of the season — forming today [May 19].

The Miami-based National Hurricane Center [NHC] said that Alberto is about 140 miles off Charleston South Carolina, and has sustained winds of more than 40 mph, with gusts at nearly 60 mph. The projections issued by the NHC do not indicate the system will pass by Bermuda.

We are under two weeks away from the official start of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season, which starts on June 1st and runs until November 30th.
