[hurricane-forecast] Tropical Storm Arthur 7/3/2014 4 am

FORECAST: Tropical Storm Arthur will become a hurricane today. Right now it is 100 miles off the coast of Georgia moving north at about 9 miles per hour and picking up speed. Winds are 72 mph and strengthening. The coast of North Carolina will experience a Category 1 hurricane. Not as bad as you go north, until Boston which will experience at least gusts of hurricane force on Saturday. Coastal areas must just be aware of heavy coastal rains and rough seas all the way through Maine, even as the storm weakens as it goes. Florida is no longer affected. DISCUSSION: Everything and all the logic remains the same as forecast. Arthur will have 3 days max as a hurricane as it moves toward Greenland for Whiter Pastures (assuming the ice has not all melted by now). NEXT FORECAST: Tomorrow morning on July 4th Have a GREAT 4th of July and Independence Day. Peter Ray DISCLAIMER: The Florida State University required that I not use any FSU equipment to send out these forecasts. To comply, I have purchased my own computer for making and sending these forecasts. I have been touched by the many offers of encouragement and support that I have received. I am deeply indebted to the Secretary and the staff of the Department of Children and Families who value these forecasts for the citizens of Florida. Also to the firm Hayes Computer Systems, which set up the distribution software and is providing for the distribution of these forecasts at no cost. They are very professional and competent. I acknowledge that these forecasts are mine alone, by my own effort and initiative. I only try to provide the best possible forecasts for the community, and the State of Florida and now, surrounding states at no cost to those who receive it. NEW BLOG AND DONATIONS: I have set up a website and blog which may be reached at URL http://www.hurricanehunt.com In this website you can find the forecast, as well as a blog of expanded interests of mine dealing with weather and climate and hurricanes, and an opportunity for you to comment as well. There is also an opportunity for you to contribute to defraying the increasing costs of maintaining this service, if and only if you want to. This must always be a not for profit public service and free as long as I have anything to do with it. But I have had offers of help in the past and it is increasingly difficult for me to underwrite all the cost, even with the generous and gracious support form Hayes Computer Systems.
