It's way too early to get too detailed on all the storm chances Thursday night through Monday specifically when the best chance for rain will be, severe weather chances, etc.... but it will not be a washout. Winds NW 5-15, gusting up to 20 miles per hour.
Arthur is expected to bring 25-75 mm of rain to coastal North Carolina by Monday with locally higher amounts possible.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami issued a tropical storm warning for North Carolina's Outer Banks on Sunday.
This area of disturbed weather has been monitored for about the past week or so for possible tropical development.
Additionally, hazardous surf and rip currents are all possible along the SC coast.
By the end of the week it will turn cooler, windier and more unsettled from the west, thanks to low pressure, spawned by the remnants of Tropical Storm Arthur, heading our way.
The storm now has maximum, sustained wind speeds of 75 km/h, with higher gusts.
An additional 2 to 4 inches of rain is being forecast for the Midwest and more than 4 inches for the Carolinas.
The storm is expected to track more to the northeast today and increase its speed. Overnight should be dry, with thunderstorms and showers expected throughout Monday, the weather service says.
The Hurricane Center said Arthur is expected to move near or just east of the coast of North Carolina, where up to 5 inches of rain was expected in spots Monday before turning away from the East Coast Tuesday.
Swells created by Arthur are already affecting parts of the "southeast USA coast and are expected to spread northward from Florida to the mid-Atlantic states over the next few days", according to the National Hurricane Center.
In the tropics: Tropical Storm Arthur continues to spin off of the eastern seaboard with maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour and is moving off to the northeast.
