...High Risk of Rip Currents Expected at Area Beaches Today...

A few showers and isolated storms will continue to rotate into the
offshore SE GA coastal waters otherwise minimal weather impacts
from TD2 this morning. Surf has increased into the 2-4 ft range
at the beaches and this will continue the increased threat of rip
currents today. Otherwise the region will be on the drier and
subsident side of this tropical cyclone and this will suppress
convection along the Atlantic Coast Sea Breeze as it pushes inland
with rain chances generally less than 20% with only isolated
showers and storms expected. Any Storms that develop will have a
southwesterly motion around 10 mph. Max temps will top out in the
lower/middle 80s along the coast and well into the upper 80s and
lower 90s further inland.


A few brief periods of MVFR CIGS in the 1500-3000 feet range along
the coastal taf sites as the sea breeze develops this morning
otherwise mainly VFR with limited rain chances and expect will be
able to remove the VCSH at most TAF sites except for KSSI where
the best chances of a shower will occur. With offshore flow
developing tonight expect mainly VFR conds once again.


Forecast on track with SCA conditions expected for the offshore SE
GA waters and any changes this afternoon will depend on eventual
track of tropical system. Elsewhere across the waters expect SCEC
conditions with Northerly winds around 15-20 knots becoming
offshore NWLY tonight.

RIP CURRENTS: High risk with morning breaker reports in the 2-4
feet range..
