Overnight Wednesday, a cold front will approach from the west. This cold front will move through the Piedmont on Thursday morning.
At the same time, Tropical Storm Arthur should move up the east coast. This cold front will help push the storm to the northeast.
As of 5 p.m. Tuesday, Arthur is approximately 560 miles south-southwest of Cape Hatteras.
Most of the rain and wind with this will remain right along the coast as it should remain about 100 miles east of the South Carolina coast and then move over the Outer Banks of North Carolina on Friday morning.
By the time Arthur reaches the Outer Banks, it could be a minimal hurricane. This will then move away from the coast of N.C. on Friday afternoon and conditions will greatly improve for the weekend.
Here in the Piedmont, conditions should be excellent on Friday and this weekend as the cold front brings in less humid and cooler air. Highs will fall back to the mid-80s and lows to the mid-60s.
