Arthur to approach the Carolina coast...

>> Wednesday, July 02, 2014

It's a hot Wednesday forecast around the region with many highs surging up into the mid 90s. When you factor in the humidity, heat index values will exceed 100 in many spots this afternoon.

Scattered storms will fire this afternoon, and while they will indeed be scattered in nature, the storms that form could produce damaging wind, some hail, and lots of lightning.

Tomorrow still looks unsettled with good chances of showers and storms at times as Arthur nears the coast and a cold front moves in from the west.

Following the front and Arthur, fantastic holiday weekend weather is on tap with highs in the 80s, low humidity, and plenty of sun. 


Tropical Storm Arthur continued to slowly strengthen overnight, and it stands a great chance of becoming a hurricane today or tonight. The strongest winds (probable tropical storm gusts) along the South Carolina coast will occur tomorrow afternoon. 

It still appears Arthur will track very near or over the Outer Banks tomorrow night into early Friday morning. Tomorrow night will feature the roughest weather for the NC coast and Outer Banks. 

Look for winds to hurricane strength at least in gusts for the Outer Banks, and sustained winds could very well make it to hurricane strength. Flooding along Highway 12 is likely, and roads and bridges could be closed as necessary. Please plan accordingly.
