.Synopsis for coastal waters from Surf City North Carolina to South
Santee River South Carolina out to 20 nautical miles...
A strong cold front will cross the waters this afternoon followed by
strong west to northwest winds. The combination of a tightened
gradient and cold air advection associated with Arctic high pressure,
will keep winds quite active across the area into Wed. The center of
the high will slide south of the area Thu resulting in winds
remaining active across the area waters. The next strong cold frontal
passage will occur during Fri.
