High risk of rip currents along the atlantic beaches today...

Angry atlantic mid to late week could provide coastal impacts...

Discussion
Clockwise flow around a surface area of high pressure over the
eastern third of the nation will keep a persistent easterly wind
over the region to conclude the weekend and kick off the work
week. The flow off the atlantic will help moderate the airmass
allowing for moistening and a slight warming trend to take hold.

Eventually some shower chances return to the forecast for the
atlantic waters and east coast. The next synoptic feature to
influence our area's sensible weather will be a frontal boundary
associated with a mid-level trough that will amplify southward
over the southeastern united states on Monday and push eastward
across the gulf into the peninsula of florida late Monday into
Tuesday.

While the rain chances for south florida with this frontal
passage are not as high as what we saw last week, the unsettled
mid-level pattern will meander around the region through mid-
week when a reinforcing mid-level trough cutoff low will push
across northern florida into the atlantic on Wednesday. While
much of the guidance agrees that most of the area will not likely
see high chances of rainfall from this system's passage, there is
some potential for rain with a focus of the moist, warmer atlantic
waters. The major impact of this system will lie with the winds
that arrive behind it which will cause the atlantic to quickly
build. Temperatures will remain fairly close to seasonal averages
for this time of year. Thunderstorm potential with the frontal
passage is non-zero but remains low and will not be mentioned in
the forecast. The best available instability appears to be over
the warmer gulfstream waters of the atlantic.

As the system departs late in the week, high pressure once again
builds in over the atlantic seaboard and the wind will return with
an easterly component. Somewhat zonal flow aloft will help keep
the pattern settled with just some shallow surface-based moisture
from the atlantic creating the possibility of showers over the
atlantic waters and east coast to close out the work week and kick
off the next weekend. As the extended forecast period ends, the
next cold front will emerge over the eastern portions of the
country.

Marine
Easterly surges of wind will produce cautionary conditions over
the waters with a chance of brief bouts of advisory conditions in
the gulfstream to conclude the weekend. The next period of
hazardous seas will arrive by Thursday behind a mid-week front
with seas in the atlantic reaching 9 to 14 feet by late week.

Beach forecast
An elevated risk of rip currents will likely persist through a good
portion of the week due to the persistent easterly flow to kick
off the week and a reinforcing mid- week frontal passage which will
lead to building seas. Not only is a high risk of rip currents
possible mid to late week but also the potential for beach
erosion and some coastal impacts is within the realm of
possibility. Interests tied to coastal flooding should monitor
the forecast evolution through the week in case the threat to the
coast materializes and a high surf advisory and or coastal flood
statement become necessary for the atlantic.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
