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