Forecast for Marine Location Near Ocean Isle Beach, NC

Discussion for Wilmington, NC
MARINE... Through Friday...Improvement in marine conditions this afternoon and evening will be short lived as next systems starts to develop along a front stalled in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Do not anticipate a particularly strong system, but the extended period of southeast fetch will help bring higher seas to the waters Fri. At the same time high pressure building in from the northeast will keep the gradient pinched with northeast to east winds around 15 kt from late tonight through Fri. Have raised a Small Craft Advisory, mainly for 6 ft seas, but winds could also approach criteria at times on Fri. Seas will be a mix of a northeast wind wave and an easterly swell into mid-morning Fri before an easterly wind wave replaces the northeast wind wave. Friday night through Tuesday... A Small Craft Advisory will be ongoing into Fri night. Hazardous marine conditions will continue Fri eve through Sat aftn as coastal trough and weak low track up the Carolina coast with persistent onshore flow and gusts close to 25 kt. Looks like conditions will improve through Sat aftn from south to north as low tracks northward and offshore flow develops. Conditions will continue to improve into early next week but increasing easterly swell should kick seas up late Mon into midweek. Overall, expect seas up to 5 to 8 ft Fri night through Sat aftn diminishing to 3 to 4 ft late Sun into Mon before increasing again to 3 to 5 ft.
