...Rough Surf and Rip Currents at the Beaches Today...

Breezy northeast winds will create rough surf along with rip
currents in the surf zone. Rough surf can be more dangerous than it
appears while standing on the beach. Heavy breaking waves can knock
you off a sandbar into deeper water or into strong currents.  Minor
beach erosion will be possible around the time of high tide early
this evening. In addition...boating conditions will be hazardous on
the Atlantic waters with seas 5 to 7 feet and very choppy. A Small
Craft Advisory remains in effect.

Scattered showers over the Atlantic will move toward the west
southwest near 20 mph and across the coast. The fast moving showers
will produce a brief period of light rain to many areas with little
accumulation. A few heavy downpours will occur mainly near the coast
and produce a quick tenth of an inch or so.
