On the forecast track, the center of Arthur will remain well offshore of the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina overnight, and then move near or just east of the coast of North Carolina on Monday. Arthur is forecast to turn away from the east coast of the United States Monday night and Tuesday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph with higher gusts. Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours. Arthur is likely to lose tropical characteristics Tuesday night and Wednesday.

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area by on Monday.
RAINFALL: Arthur is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 1 to 3 inches over coastal North Carolina tonight and Monday, with locally higher amounts.
SURF: Swells generated by Arthur are affecting portions of the southeast U.S. coast and are expected to spread northward along the U.S. mid-Atlantic coast during the next day or two. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions across much of the U.S. southeast and mid-Atlantic coasts.
