Strong high pressure building southward along the U.S. eastern seaboard is creating increasing onshore winds early this morning at coastal locations. We expect northeast to easterly winds to strengthen further as the morning progresses, with sustained wind speeds approaching 25 mph before noon for locations east of Interstate 95. Wind gusts up to 40 mph are possible at area beaches this afternoon. A Wind Advisory will be in effect for these coastal counties from 11 AM -7 PM today. Strong onshore winds will create high surf, with breakers of 7-8 feet possible this afternoon and tonight along the St. Johns and Flagler County beaches. A High Risk of Rip Currents will continue at all beaches in southeast Georgia and northeast Florida through Friday, as breezy onshore winds will continue along with rough surf.
