    Arthur may be a bigger pest for the eve of Independence Day

    Current projections have Tropical cyclone Arthur reaching the coast just off the Delmarva Peninsula throughout mid-day Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

    The primarily influence locally will be enhancing the rain Loudoun gets on July 3, according to Carl Barnes, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Sterling.

    "Friday raining should be done by sunrise and by noon it will be a nice clear day. Not expecting much except breezy winds Friday," said Barnes.

    Thunderstorms with periods of local showers could make for a messy Thursday, though.

    Because of heavy rains, flash flooding could be a threat as well, said Barnes.

    "Might get breezy winds from it, but really overall expecting it to have minimal impact locally on Friday," said Barnes.

    Some info from the county website:

    Familiarize yourself with the terminology
    -Flash Floods can develop in a matter of minutes, so if you hear a Flash Flood Warning take action immediately.
    -Flood Watch means that a flood is possible in your area.
    -Flood Warning means flooding is already occurring or will occur soon in your area.
