Tropical Storm Arlene Special Discussion Number   5
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL022023
100 PM CDT Fri Jun 02 2023

Data from the Air Force Hurricane Hunters indicate that the 
depression has strengthened into a tropical storm.  On the last leg 
of the current mission, the aircraft found maximum 925 
mb flight-level winds of around 50 kt and SFMR surface winds of 
around 35 kt.  Based on these data, Tropical Depression Two has 
been upgraded to Tropical Storm Arlene with estimated peak winds of 
35 kt.  

Although the storm has strengthened slightly, we still expect 
Arlene to weaken soon due to increasing wind shear and dry air, and 
no change has been made to the forecast.  The next forecast will be 
issued at the normal time at 4 pm CDT.
