Weather Alert Radar

Arthur - 07/02/14

Hurricane season is in full swing, and we're now tracking our first tropical storm of the season.  Tropical Storm Arthur has been strengthening over the past 24 hours and it looks as though that trend will continue.  Arthur is on track to become the first hurricane of the 2014 season.  So if your holiday plans include traveling to the east coast, you'll want to pay close attention to the forecast over the next few days.

The 5pm Wednesday update classified Arthur as a strong tropical storm with winds around 70 mph sitting off the northern Florida coastline.  Movement is slow, around 7mph pushing north.  Tropical storm warnings have gone up along the South Carolina coastline, and hurricane warnings along the North Carolina coastline.  Recent models have shifted the track a *tad* west, but it still looks like the core of the storm will remain just off shore over the next two days.  You can check out the official National Hurricane Track to the right.

Showers and storms, gusty winds and high rip current threats will be possible along the Carolina coastline for Thursday and Friday.  Stay weather aware if you are traveling east for the holiday weekend.

POLICE-GOAT

SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Some Detroit-area cops are dealing with some real animals. Officers in Shelby Township had to take control of a black goat when it was found wandering a city park this week. Last month, the department rounded up an aggressive stray pig that charged a woman doing yard work. The pig was briefly detained and a photo of its ride in the back of a police cruiser went viral. The department is now trying to get the goat off its hands. Officers have posted a picture on Facebook, asking, "Does anyone know who owns this goat?!"

STONER CAMP

DURANGO, Colo. (AP) -- Plans for a pot-friendly ranch resort in Colorado have been snuffed out. The 170-acre CannaCamp resort touted weed-friendly activities like hiking and fishing. But a deal with the landowner fell through, and the marijuana-tourism company promoting the resort says it won't open after all. The deal was kicked after the announcement made international headlines and became the butt of jokes on late-night TV.

FIREWORKS TRUCK EXPLODES

IVANPAH, Calif. (AP) -- Fourth of July has come early along a Southern California freeway. A van packed with fireworks exploded yesterday in what one witness calls a "psychedelic" display. But the sparkling sight was a headache for everyone caught in the backup that ensued. The burned out van briefly closed the main road between Los Angeles and Las Vegas at the start of the holiday weekend. The driver of the van fled and hasn't been found.

MAILING METH

HONOLULU (AP) -- Most people see a toaster oven and think breakfast. Some criminals, think crystal meth. Two men are pleading not guilty to helping mail six pounds of methamphetamine from California to Hawaii in a four slice toaster. And it's not the first time drug smugglers have gotten savvy with shipments to the island state. Meth has previously been shipped to Hawaii in mannequin heads and stuffed animals.
