Forecast for Marine Location Near Shell Point, SC

Discussion for Charleston, SC
MARINE... Tonight: An inverted trough will be placed over land as a warm front, while a stationary front meanders across northern Florida and nearby waters. Weak low pressure is expected to develop along the warm front and track north through the night. The gradient will slacken considerably as the low tracks north, resulting in southerly winds to diminish to 10-15 kt. Although winds improve tonight, seas will be slow to respond, ranging between 5-8 ft across northern SC nearshore waters and offshore Georgia waters and 4-6 ft across southern SC nearshore waters. Small Craft Advisories will remain in effect for these zones due to higher seas. Elsewhere, conditions are expected to remain below Small Craft Advisory levels, although nearshore Georgia waters could have seas touch 6 ft near 20 nm offshore early this evening. Another concern for mariners will be fog due to the lowering of stratus overnight. This could impact navigation in and out of the Charleston Harbor and Savannah River, as well as on the nearshore Atlantic waters. Dense Fog Advisories presently seem unlikely. The seas should steadily subside on Saturday, allowing the Small Craft Advisories to drop off throughout the afternoon. Conditions should remain below advisory levels Saturday night through Tuesday. Southerly flow will strengthen Tuesday night into Wednesday, with some 6 ft seas potentially building across the Charleston nearshore and GA offshore waters.
