The Independence Day weekend looks good for most of the Southeast, with the exception of coastal SC and eastern NC, which are feeling the brunt of Arthur, which became a hurricane earlier this morning.  Rainfall amounts away from the storm are expected to be light and scattered and winds will also be light.

The impacts from the storm for Georgia and other areas of the Southeast are mainly confined to higher than usual waves and the chance of rip currents in some areas.  However, those will fade away as the storm moves north.
