Tropical Storm Arthur strengthened in the overnight hours off the east coast of Florida and will continue to make it’s way to the north and east and up the eastern seaboard. Despite the storm off the coast, North Florida will have a typical summer weather pattern for Wednesday with scattered showers and thunderstorms and heat indices near 100°.
Some of the outer bands from Arthur could make their way onshore, however. Most of that activity will remain near Highway 301 and points eastward. Just a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms near and west of I-75 through the afternoon hours.
Rain chances will increase on Thursday as Arthur continues progesses to the northeast and parallels the eastern seaboard. Southwesterly slow will set up for the end of the the week and keep rain chances elevated as it sends the Atlantic sea breeze inland. You can track the storms with us online at WRUFWeather.com.
