Eastern MA and eastern ME can expect heavy rain and tropical storm force winds as Arthur passes by, and coastal areas will experience heavier surf but storm surge should not be a big problem.
Finally, I wanted to share some buoy and C-MAN station observations that experienced near-direct hits on Thursday night by Arthur. These plots show five days of observations of surface wind speed (blue) and wind gust (red) as well as surface pressure (green). All of the locations were inside the eye, though not perfectly in the center.
Buoy 40136: Onslow Bay Outer
Station BFTN7: Beaufort
C-MAN CLKN7: Cape Lookout
