Hurricane Arthur has moved back over the Atlantic and is projected to remain offshore this Fourth of July, after making landfall on the southern end of North Carolina’s barrier islands Thursday with sustained winds up to 100 mph.

By 9 a.m. Friday, Arthur had weakened to Category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds around 90 mph, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said. At this time, Arthur was centered about 130 miles east of Norfolk, Virginia, and was moving northeast near 23 mph.

It is projected to be near or over western Nova Scotia early Saturday.
