.Synopsis for coastal waters from Surf City North Carolina to South

Hurricane Jose will spin nearly stationary off the Mid-Atlantic coast
the next several days. 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.
