Hurricane Arthur: (Quick) NC Visit

Folks at the coast will be dealing with a strengthening Category 2 Hurricane Arthur. Outer Banks should bear the brunt of it as usual and flooding and lots of beach erosion looks definite as you can see the ominous approach. However, it should lift / move quickly NE as it nears the coast.


Negligible impact here in the Piedmont as we are squeezed between Arthur's air flow and the approaching cold front.
 Last point, latest satellite shows eyewall like feature but that could be a trick of dry air or banding. Will be interesting to see. Very warm water to fuel the fire.
