[hurricane-forecast] HURRICANE ARTHUR 7/4/2014 7am

Friends, This will be the last scheduled report on Arthur since it no longer threatens US land directly. I will be happy to respond to any specific inquiry. FORECAST: HURRICANE ARTHUR has left North Carolina moving NE at 25 mph and with MSW winds of 95 mph. Arthur made landfall on the Outer Islands during low tide which reduced the damage of flooding. Next landfall will be in the Maritime Providences, as a week hurricane or strong tropical storm. There STILL will be squalls, rough seas, strong winds, rain and rip currents all up the east coast, and Boston will have a rough 6 six hours as it makes a close approach to the cape. STAY OUT OF THE WATER unless you want to feed the fish. DISCUSSION: Everything is unfolding as foretold. Have a wonderful 4th with rememberance. And as John Adams said: celebrate with "illuminations", which we also celebrate in our National Anthem. NEXT FORECAST: Next storm 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.
