Beginning as a low pressure area 140 miles off the coast of Florida, Tropical Storm Arthur is expected to turn into a Hurricane. Hurricane Arthur is predicted to hit the outranks of North Carolina this upcoming weekend.
Meteorologists are still trying to determine whether or not the hurricane is going to be detractive and how far in land it will reach before dissipating. Winds are expected to reach an upwards of 90 to 100 mph when Hurricane Arthur reaches the coast of North Carolina, and then curve to the east away from the United States. People that have planned holiday weekends for the 4th of July are starting to cancel reservations and prepare for the worse.
