Tropical Storm Arthur is moving out to sea and on its way to becoming post tropical.  At 5 am Tuesday, Arthur was located near 30.0 North, 70.6 West, about 300 miles east-northeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.  Maximum sustained winds were 60 miles per hour.  Arthur was moving east-northeast at 15 miles per hour.  This system will continue to bring heavy swells and dangerous rip currents to much of the southeast and mid-Atlantic coast for the next few days.
