See how much of your Independence Day will be saved:

After battering the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Hurricane Arthur is expected to curve to the northeast and take aim at the Canadian Maritiimes.

As a result, he will pass several hundred miles to the east of Atlantic City, but close enough to deliver a few periods of heavy rain.

The heaviest precipit ation may fall during the late-morning and early afternoon, according to the NAM future simulated weather radar model.

A band of heavy rain will move through South Jersey around the noon-2 p.m. timeframe, according to the NAM.

However, the rain quickly pulls away and off the coast by 5 p.m., according to the NAM.

If this happens, all of the Friday night fireworks planned up and down the JerseyShore will be safe.

Clearing skies and improving conditions will mark the rest of the Independence Day weekend.

By 5 p.m., July 4, most of the rain associated with Hurricane Arthur will have moved off of the Jersey Shore, leaving the fireworks safe and dry./Weatherbell Analytics, www.weatherbell.com By 5 p.m., July 4, most of the rain associated with Hurricane Arthur will have moved off of the Jersey Shore, leaving the fireworks safe and dry./Weatherbell Analytics, www.weatherbell.com
