7. Now Tropical Storm Arthur

At 500 AM EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Arthur was
located near latitude 30.0 North, longitude 77.6 West. Arthur is
moving toward the north-northeast near 9 mph (15 km/h). A turn
toward the northeast with an increase in forward speed is expected
during the next 24 to 48 hours. On the forecast track, Arthur will
remain well offshore the east coast of Florida, Georgia,
and South Carolina today, and then move near or just east of the
coast of North Carolina on Monday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours. Arthur is
likely to lose its tropical characteristics on Tuesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1006 mb (29.71 inches).

9. In FL, we're on "the dry side." Darn! Drought and heat are killing

plants and requiring watering by those who can. Rivers, lakes, and freshwater marshes are all very low here in central California, and a day or two of good rain would be very welcome.

The mowed collection of volunteers we call a lawn can lump it, but since February I've twice now had to drag out the hose for deep waterings when drought-tolerant shrubs were in danger. The last was just a couple of days ago, and we also had to water dying plantings put in this winter by snowbird neighbors who've returned north.

And, of course, the wildfire season is not only coming but already arrived in south Florida.
