As the first hurricane of the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season, Hurricane Arthur brought rough surf, heavy rain, damaging winds and rip currents to many of the East coast's beaches for the July Fourth holiday.
Having the greatest impact on the Carolinas, Arthur forced many beach goers to evacuate and put 11 North Carolina counties under states of emergency.
Tracking northward up the East coast, Hurricane Arthur weakened from a Category 2 hurricane to a Category 1 on Friday morning.
The tropical system will bring blinding downpours and rough surf through Saturday for areas from the Delmarva Peninsula to New Jersey, Long Island and Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
Upon leaving the United States, Arthur will approach Nova Scotia, bringing strong winds, pounding surf and heavy rain to Prince Edward Island, Saint John's and Halifax on Saturday.
