Marine Forecast Discussion

.MARINE...
A Small Craft Advisory flag was issued last night with the occasional
gusts to 25 knots and 5 ft seas (at 44009). These winds and seas  
have been slow to diminish, so the Small Craft Advisory has 
been extended until noon. 

This afternoon and tonight...Northwest winds 10 to 20 kt are 
forecast, with a gradual shift to north or even northeast 
tonight. Seas of 2 to 4 feet are expected.

Thursday...Variable winds in the morning will become southerly 
during the afternoon. Speeds should generally be 10 kt or less, 
though they will be increasing late in the day. Seas at or below 3 
feet are anticipated.

Outlook...

Friday... Sub-SCA conditions expected. Light rain or snow possible.

Friday night-Sunday... Marine headlines are likely as a strong 
coastal storm passes offshore. Winds and seas will ramp up quickly 
Friday night. Depending on the strength and track of the coastal 
storm, gale or storm force winds will be possible. Winds will 
increase from the northeast on Friday night, then increase further 
and shift to north then northwest on Saturday. Heavy rain or snow 
possible. Seas building to 6 to 8 ft, possibly greater.

Sunday night-Monday... Diminishing winds and seas with conditions 
returning to sub-SCA levels.

Rip Current Risk Categories:

* Low Risk - Implies that wind and wave conditions do not support an
enhanced rip current risk. However, life-threatening rip currents are
always possible in the vicinity of groins, jetties, reefs, and piers.

* Moderate Risk - Life-threatening rip currents are possible in the
surf zone. Anyone planning to enter the surf should check with local
beach patrols first. Be sure to swim within sight of a life guard,
and never alone or at night.

* High Risk - Life-threatening rip currents are likely for all people
entering the surf zone. Anyone visiting the beaches should stay out
of the surf.

If you enter the surf zone, always have a flotation device with you
and swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float, and do not swim against the current. If able, swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
shore and yell or wave for help.

Rip Current Risk Categories:

* Low Risk - Implies that wind and wave conditions do not support an
enhanced rip current risk. However, life-threatening rip currents are
always possible in the vicinity of groins, jetties, reefs, and piers.

* Moderate Risk - Life-threatening rip currents are possible in the
surf zone. Anyone planning to enter the surf should check with local
beach patrols first. Be sure to swim within sight of a life guard,
and never alone or at night.

* High Risk - Life-threatening rip currents are likely for all people
entering the surf zone. Anyone visiting the beaches should stay out
of the surf.

If you enter the surf zone, always have a flotation device with you
and swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float, and do not swim against the current. If able, swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
shore and yell or wave for help.

Latest Offshore Waters Forecast for New England

FZNT21 KWBC 260823
OFFNT1

Offshore Waters Forecast
NWS Ocean Prediction Center Washington DC
323 AM EST Wed Jan 26 2022

New England continental shelf and slope waters from 25 nm
offshore to the Hague Line, except to 1000 fm south of New
England.

Seas given as significant wave height, which is the average
height of the highest 1/3 of the waves. Individual waves may be
more than twice the significant wave height.

ANZ898-262030-
323 AM EST Wed Jan 26 2022

.SYNOPSIS FOR NEW ENGLAND WATERS...Mariners should closely
monitor forecasts for updates and potentially make avoidance
plans, as there are increasing chances that a powerful storm will
impact the waters late Fri into the weekend. Strong high 
pressure will slowly build E and SE over the waters today into 
Thu, then will shift E of the area Thu night. Another cold front 
will approach from the NW Fri, then drift offshore and stall Fri 
night. Intensifying low pressure will approach the waters from 
the S late Fri and Fri night, then move NE across the region Sat 
into Sat night while continuing to strengthen. A few low pressure
troughs or reinforcing cold fronts will move E across the waters
Sun and Sun night while high pressure gradually builds E to the 
coast.

Rip Current Risk

Rip Current Risk Definitions

Low Risk Surf zone conditions are not expected to support the development of life threatening rip currents. However, life threatening rip currents often occur in the vicinity of groins, jetties, reefs, and piers.
Moderate Risk Surf zone conditions are favorable for the development of life threatening rip currents.
High Risk Surf zone conditions will likely support the development of life threatening rip currents.

These models forecasts are produced by WFO Mount Holly, NJ, using the NWPS wave models and the Real Time Ocean Forecast System.


The NWPS output is used as guidance to produce WFO Mount Holly's marine forecasts. It is only experimental and it may differ from the official forecast.  For the official marine forecast  graphics go to:  WFO PHI Official Marine Forecast Graphics.

NWPS accounts for the following physics:

  • Wave propagation in time and space, shoaling, refraction due to current and depth, frequency shifting due to currents and non-stationary depth.
  • Wave generation by wind.
  • Three- and four-wave interactions.
  • Whitecapping, bottom friction and depth-induced breaking.
  • Dissipation.
  • Wave-induced set-up.
  • Propagation from laboratory up to global scales.
  • Transmission through and reflection (specular and diffuse) against obstacles.
  • Diffraction.

In here you will see 3-hourly forecast outputs for significant wave height, peak wave direction, peak wave period, and significant swell height (heights in feet and periods in seconds).  Our local version of NWPS also uses input from WAVEWATCH III for boundary conditions.

NOTE:  Significant Swell Height output from NWPS is the average height of the highest 1/3 of the group of waves with periods of 10 secs or longer.
