A lot of fireworks displays are postponed due to hurricane Arthur, but it's looking good for the big booms in our nation's capital. 

Hurricane Arthur has put a damper on numerous firework's displays with many locations having to postpone or cancel.  Fortunately for us, the fireworks should be able to get off without a hitch in the Nation's Capital.  Here's a list of cities where fireworks have been rescheduled.

Hurricane Arthur made landfall near Beaufort, N.C. around 11:15 p.m. Thursday night.  Arthur was downgraded to a category 1 hurricane with winds at 90 mph as of the 9 a.m. update from the National Hurricane Center.  The storm has moved off the coast of the Outer Banks, NC and is quickly moving northeast.

As a cold front slides through our area and Arthur moves farther out to sea, skies will clear from west to east, as drier air filters in.  It'll also be quite breezy, with winds gusting to around 30 mph through the day.
Winds will subside by the time the fireworks are set to go off downtown at 9:10pm.  And we couldn't ask for a more pleasant fireworks forecast.  It will be very comfortable, with low humidity and still just a bit breezy.  Click here for a full list of Fourth of July parades, events, and fireworks' displays.
The rest of the holiday weekend looks fantastic!  The humidity will remain low with plenty of sunshine and seasonable temperatures.
