At 500 AM EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Arthur was
located near latitude 30.0 North, longitude 77.6 West. Arthur is
moving toward the north-northeast near 9 mph (15 km/h).  A turn 
toward the northeast with an increase in forward speed is expected 
during the next 24 to 48 hours.  On the forecast track, Arthur will 
remain well offshore the east coast of Florida, Georgia,
and South Carolina today, and then move near or just east of the 
coast of North Carolina on Monday.
  
Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours.  Arthur is 
likely to lose its tropical characteristics on Tuesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km)
from the center.

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected within the Tropical
Storm Warning area on Monday.
 
RAINFALL: Arthur is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
1 to 3 inches over coastal North Carolina tonight and Monday,
with locally higher amounts.
 
SURF:  Swells generated by Arthur are affecting portions of
the east coast of central and northern Florida.  These swells are
expected to spread northward during the next few days, and could
cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions across much
of the U.S. southeast and mid-Atlantic coasts.  Please consult
products from your local weather office.
