The First Alert Weather Team is here to answer your questions about Hurricane Arthur.

Arthur will likely steam just east of the Cape Fear Region today and tonight.

Such a track would likely keep the wettest and windiest portion of the storm offshore, but nevertheless, a significant period of tropical storm conditions may still affect the area in that time.

Access to warm water will likely allow Arthur to maintain strength or gradually strengthen through Thursday.

Meanwhile, a trough of low pressure will likely guide the system just east of the Cape Fear Region Thursday night - but it will be a very close call!

In any case, it'll be a fast-mover and will certainly not linger for the holiday weekend!
