NHZ014-210815-
Coastal Rockingham-
Including the beaches of Portsmouth and Hampton
620 PM EDT Sun May 20 2018

.TOMORROW...
WEATHER.............Sunny.
ULTRAVIOLET INDEX...8 - Very High.
LIGHTNING THREAT....None.
HIGH TEMPERATURE....In the mid 70s.
WINDS...............Southwest winds 5 to 10 mph.
SURF HEIGHT.........Around 2 feet.
WATER TEMPERATURE...50 degrees. According to the USCG, when the
                    water temperature is below 60 degrees, the
                    average submerged person could lose dexterity
                    within minutes and be unable to accomplish
                    simple tasks like buckling a life jacket or
                    operating a radio.
RIP CURRENT RISK....LOW. A low risk of rip currents implies that
                    wind and wave conditions are not expected to
                    support the development of enhanced rip
                    currents. However, rip currents are always
                    possible, especially near jetties and other
                    structures. Always have a flotation device with
                    you in the water.
