      Arthur Update and Fireworks Forecast

      Hurricane Arthur has put a damper on numerous firework's displays with many locations having to postpone or cancel.{} Fortunately for us, the fireworks should be able to get off without a hitch in the Nation's Capital.{} Here's a list of cities where fireworks have been rescheduled.

      Hurricane Arthur made landfall near Beaufort, N.C. around 11:15 p.m. Thursday night.{} Arthur was downgraded to a category 1 hurricane with winds at 90 mph as of the 9 a.m. update from the National Hurricane Center.{} The storm has moved off the coast of the Outer Banks, NC and is quickly moving northeast. (National Hurricane Center)As a cold front slides through our area and Arthur moves farther out to sea, skies will clear from west to east, as drier air filters in.{} It'll also be quite breezy, with winds gusting to around 30 mph through the day. Winds will subside by the time the fireworks are set to go off downtown at 9:10pm.{} And we couldn't ask for a more pleasant fireworks forecast.{} It will be very comfortable, with low humidity and still just a bit breezy.{} Click here for a full list of Fourth of July parades, events, and fireworks' displays. The rest of the holiday weekend looks fantastic!{} The humidity will remain low with plenty of sunshine and seasonable temperatures.
