As Hurricane Arthur continues to churn in the Atlantic, East Coast beach-goers should prepare for dangerous surf, rip currents and periods of wet weather over the Fourth of July.
The first hurricane of the season in the Atlantic is expected to hinder holiday plans for millions from Daytona Beach, Florida, up through Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
The brunt of Arthur is expected to be Thursday night through Friday, bringing heavy rain and high wind gusts to areas from North Carolina up through southern New England.
