.Synopsis for coastal waters from Surf City North Carolina to South
Santee River South Carolina out to 20 nautical miles...
Hurricane Jose will spin nearly stationary off the Mid-Atlantic coast
the next several days, while Hurricane Maria approaches Puerto Rico
tonight. Winds will remain relatively light across the local waters
this week as the pressure pattern remains flat, but seas will build
late in the week as Hurricane Maria approaches the Bahamas, and SE
swell moves onto the East Coast. Marie is expected to pass offshore
of the Carolinas next week.
