Marine Forecast Discussion

.MARINE...
Sub-SCA conditions with fair weather on tap tonight and Thursday. 
Seas on the ocean will be mostly 2 to 3 ft. 

Outlook... 

Thursday night...The conditions are anticipated to be below 
Small Craft Advisory criteria.

Friday and Saturday...Southwesterly flow increases allowing the seas 
to build some. A much warmer airmass will be moving over the cooler 
waters, therefore strongest gusts may be along the coast. It is 
possible that wind gusts near 25 knots at times.

Sunday and Monday...The conditions should be below Small Craft 
Advisory criteria.


Rip Currents...
The risk of rip currents on Thursday, May 24 is forecast to be
low. Despite some onshore flow (around 10 kt) in the afternoon,
wave heights and swells are forecast to be around or below 2 
ft.

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.
