    We have a stormy start to today.

    Hurricane Arthur is well off the coast, but will impact to us today with periods of rain and possible thunderstorms. Central and southern parts of Delaware and the Jersey Shore will see heavier rain that will linger the longest. Moderate rain is expected to start around 6 a.m. near Dover, Delaware and parts of the Jersey shore.

    Inland, the rain will end sooner and remain lighter.

    The day will be windy with gusts strongest along the shore, up to 35 miles per hour. Also, rip currents will remain strong and dangerous throughout the weekend, even after the rain has cleared.

    Wherever you are, it's expected to clear in time for fireworks tonight, according to NBC10 First Alert Meteorologist Brittney Shipp.
