Marine Forecast Discussion

Forecast: Cooler temperatures closer to the shore points will prevail much of this week due to an persistent onshore flow. In addition, more clouds than sun will also be seen on many days as ocean water temperatures are still generally in the lower 50s. Temperatures will increase the farther inland away from the coastal plain. Precipitation this week is limited, and centered around a remnant upper level low and associated surface low, which will bring scattered showers to the region Friday, more intermittently Friday night, and  a chance for showers or thunderstorms favoring later in the day on Saturday as the upper level low exits. Breezy conditions will develop in the wake of that departing low on Sunday with cooler temps, then rebounding through midweek.

Tropical concerns:  No threats expected

Marine:  A small craft advisory issued by the NWS for Thursday and Thursday night should be allowed to expire, as seas diminish to 4-6 feet from the 6-9 feet expected Thursday. Upper level low and associated surface low Friday-Saturday poses little marine risk Friday, but late day thunderstorms are possible Saturday that could provide rough seas temporarily if/when any storms impact shore areas. As the ULL exits Sunday, breezy onshore wind conditions develop and choppy seas increase to near-advisory levels for small craft marine interests both Sunday and Monday to 4-6 feet. Wave heights are expected to lessen to 3-5 feet Tuesday and Wednesday. Any localized thunderstorm activity can promote rough seas, and you should follow all statements issued by the NWS for marine interests in the shorter term and day of any boating or beach activity.
