Heading to the Beach this Weekend? Read the Latest About Arthur

Tropical Storm Arthur Map

If you’re heading to Virginia Beach, Ocean City, Rehobeth Beach, or a host of other local beaches, you may want to read this about Tropical Storm Arthur.

In a case of very bad timing, Arthur will bring dangerous surf and a period of wet weather to many Atlantic coast beaches during the Fourth of July.

Millions of people from Daytona Beach, Florida, to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Cape Hatteras, North Carolina; Virginia Beach, Virginia; Wildwood, New Jersey; the Hamptons, New York; and Cape Cod, Massachusetts, will be impacted on their vacation during part of this week.

Even though the track of Arthur will take the center east of most beaches Thursday, Friday and Saturday, winds offshore will create large swells which will propagate onshore in the form of powerful waves as well as frequent, strong rip currents.

People are urged to obey restrictions on the beach and in the surf this weekend. Failure to do so may put not only themselves at risk but also their would-be rescuers.

The surf will continue to build through Friday along much of the East coast as Arthur strengthens.
