Updated July 3: Arthur is now a Category 1 hurricane positioned east of Savannah, Georgia. The nearest significant impact to land is expected to occur in Charleston, South Carolina, which is beginning to feel the effects of Arthur’s outer bands. Models calculate landfall on July 4 near North Carolina's Outer Banks, however, tropical storm warnings are currently in place 20 miles off the coast of Savannah, and marine warnings and rip current warnings will remain in place at least until tonight. Beachgoers should use extreme caution due to the potential for rip currents. SCAD will continue to monitor conditions and issue updates accordingly.

Posted July 2: Please be advised that there's a chance the Georgia coast could experience the effects of Tropical Storm Arthur overnight Wednesday, July 2 into Thursday, July 3. Although this storm is currently not a major threat to Chatham County or SCAD Savannah operations, slight variations of the storm track could change the weekend forecast.

Current prediction models show the storm moving toward the Carolinas over the Fourth of July weekend. This system could create dangerous rip currents along the Atlantic coast. Additional updates regarding this evolving weather system will be distributed as necessary.
