Severe Weather and Heavy Rain for the Southern U.S.

A potent storm system will roll across the Southern tier of the U.S. over the next two days. As a result, severe thunderstorms with large hail, damaging winds and a few tornadoes are possible from the southern Plains and Lower Mississippi Valley into the South and Southeast. Also, heavy rain from these thunderstorms may cause some flood concerns, especially in the Lower Mississippi Valley. Read More >

Marine Forecast Discussion

.MARINE...
A Small Craft Advisory is in effect until noon Friday on 
Delaware Bay and the coastal waters of Delaware, and until 6:00 
PM Friday on the coastal waters of New Jersey. The westerly wind
should continue to gust near 25 knots during the advisory 
period.

The air mass will be warmer Friday afternoon, therefore the 
mixing may limit the winds over the cooler waters with the 
stronger winds shifting to along the coast.

Outlook...

Saturday... Sub-SCA conditions expected. Southwest wind 10 to 
15 kt. Seas 2 to 3 ft. 

Saturday night-Sunday night... SCA conditions will develop from
south to north on Saturday night as an area of low pressure 
passes over or just south of the region. South or southeast wind
gusts will increase to around 25 kt, with seas building towards
5 ft. Sunday will see a wind shift to northwest with gusts of 
25 to 30 kt likely and seas of 5 to 7 ft. On Sunday night, 
Delaware Bay may fall below SCA levels, but the Atlantic coastal
waters will see continued 5 to 6 ft seas and northwest wind 
gusts to around 25 kt.

Monday-Tuesday... Trending towards sub-SCA conditions on Monday
and beyond, with decreasing winds and seas. Quiet conditions 
likely on the waters for most of next week.

Strong northwesterly winds will continue this afternoon, with
gusts to near gale force possible. These winds will continue to 
push water out of the Chesapeake Bay and adjacent tidal waterways,
resulting in unusually low water levels.

Mariners should check navigation charts and be careful not to
ground your vessel, particularly when boating away from the main 
channel. Inexperienced mariners, especially those operating
smaller vessels, should avoid navigating in these conditions.

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.

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.
