...HIGH RISK FOR RIP CURRENTS IN EFFECT FROM 8 AM EDT THIS MORNING
THROUGH THIS EVENING...

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for southeast South Carolina.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Please listen to NOAA Weather Radio or go to weather.gov on the
Internet for more information about the following hazards.

   High Risk for Rip Currents.

Coastal Flooding: Tides may reach marginal Advisory levels during the
evening high tide which could cause shallow saltwater inundation in
typically vulnerable coastal areas. Thus, a Coastal Flood Advisory
may be needed for all or portions of the coast.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.

Rip Currents: The combination of higher than normal tides, onshore
winds and swells in the surf zone will support an enhanced risk for
rip currents through mid week, possibly lasting into Friday.

Coastal Flooding: High tides could reach Advisory levels, mainly late
Wednesday into Friday, due to strengthening onshore winds and swells
impacting the coast. This could cause shallow to moderate saltwater
inundation in vulnerable coastal areas, possibly even reaching major
levels Thursday night. Thus, Coastal Flood Advisories are expected
during several high tide cycles with Watches/Warnings also possible.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter assistance is not anticipated at this time.
