BREAKING NEWS AT 11 --

HURRICANE ARTHUR IS MAKING LANDFALL AS A CATEGORY TWO STORM --

ROBERT VAN WINKLE IS IN THE HURRICANE TRACKING CENTER.

ROBERT, THIS PICKED UP SOME STEAM IN THE LAST COUPLE HOURS.

CLIP ARTHUR

HOT AND MOSTLY DRY FOR JULY 4TH

It was another hot and humid day across the region, with temps pushing into the low 90s. A few scattered showers did develop inland and this activity will diminish this evening, with temps only falling into the 80s. Expect another very warm overnight, with lows only down in the mid to upper 70s.

Independence Day

It's shaping up to be a mostly dry - but hot - July 4th for Southwest Florida. Dry air will remain in place courtesy of Hurricane Arthur, and the result will be reduced rain chances. A couple isolated showers will be possible in the morning time frame with onshore flow continuing.

Most of the area will stay dry throughout the day, with the exception of a few isolated showers inland. Highs for Independence Day will be in the low 90s, with temps for the fireworks shows in the 80s.

Moisture does slowly return to the area starting Saturday. This will bring slightly better rain and storm chances to the area, although many locations will likely stay dry. Highs on Saturday will be in the low 90s.

Even more moisture works in on Sunday, and this will be our best chance for rain and storms over the holiday weekend. The rain and storms should hold off until the afternoon and early evening hours, with temps holding in the low 90s.

The typical morning sunshine-PM storms weather pattern returns by next week, with temps in the low 90s.

Hurricane Arthur

Hurricane Arthur remains a strong Category 1 hurricane in the 2 pm advisory from the National Hurricane Center, with sustained winds of 90 mph and gusts of 115 mph. Arthur is now 225 miles southwest of Cape Hatteras, N.C.

The hurricane is still expected to strengthen to a Category 2 storm this evening before impacting the eastern coastline of North Carolina. Hurricane Warnings remain in effect for much of coastal North Carolina.

Winds approaching 100 mph and storm surge of 3 to 5 feet will be possible with Arthur as it slides across coastal areas of North Carolina.

Arthur will exit quickly early Friday morning, and may cause some impacts to the Cape Cod area of New England before heading toward Eastern Canada. Return to index of stories...
