along the coast) and flight restrictions. Period of gusty wnw winds

Marine
As of 345 pm edt Monday...

late this aftn, a weak cold front was laying acrs NE nc, while
sfc high pressure was over the oh valley and ky. This front will
push SE of the area this evening, then another weak cold front
will cross the waters early Tue morning. While winds will
increase, the CAA and pressure gradient is too weak for
issuance of any SCA headlines. N NE winds at up to 15 kt with a
few gusts to 20 kt will be possible. NE winds 5-15 kt tue
morning will become E at 5-10 kt during the aftn. Sub-sca
conditions then prevail through Tue night, before another area
of low pressure is progged to impact the area on wed, followed
by a much stronger cold front Wed night. Solid scas (due to
winds) look likely Wed night-thu behind the front. Local wind
probabilities are starting to latch onto ~50% chance for gale
gusts at buoy 44009 by Wed night, and expect that gales may be
needed over the northern coastal waters. Due to the offshore nw
flow, seas will not build that much despite the strong winds,
generally to 4-6 ft while waves in the bay build to ~4 ft with
2-3 ft waves in the rivers. The current forecast has winds
remaining AOA sca thresholds for bay and coast through ~12z
fri. Sub-sca conditions return by late fri, as high pressure
settles over the waters.

current water levels ivof the albemarle sound. Only one near
flood stage was edenton, nc where the level just fell below the
2.0 ft minor flooding level at 9 pm.

The rip current risk will be moderate over area beaches Tuesday.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
