... Flood Watch in effect through Wednesday evening...
The National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City has issued
* Flood Watch for a portion of eastern North Carolina...
including the following areas... Beaufort... Carteret... Craven...
Jones... Mainland Dare... Mainland Hyde... Onslow... Outer Banks
Dare... Outer Banks Hyde... Pamlico... Tyrrell and Washington.
* Through Wednesday evening
* 3 to 4 inches of rain... locally higher... is possible through
Wednesday. Heavy rain over already saturated ground may result in
* Likely ponding of water on roadways and possible Road closures
A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
... Beach hazards statement now in effect through Wednesday
* hazards... strong rip currents and north to south long shore
* Location... north of Cape Lookout.
* Timing and tides... the most likely time for strong rip currents
to develop are a couple hours either side of low tide... which
will occur around 230 PM Wednesday afternoon.
Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach
patrol. Pay attention to flags and posted signs posted near beach
access points and lifeguard stations.
If you become caught in a rip current... do not panic. Remain calm
and begin to swim parallel to shore. Once you are away from the
force of the rip current... begin to swim back to the beach. Do
not attempt to swim directly against a rip current... since it can
exhaust and even kill the strongest swimmer.
Strong long shore currents can sweep swimmers and surfers into
rip currents... piers... jetties and other hazardous areas. In many
cases the long shore current is strong enough to prevent swimmers
from being able to keep their feet on the bottom making it
difficult to return to shore.
Please visit the following website to share your thoughts on the
new rip current hazard...

Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 1000 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 23 2014 Synopsis... a trough of low pressure will approach from offshore tonight and move inland Wednesday. The trough will stall over the area Wednesday night and Thursday...then move back offshore Friday and Saturday. High pressure will build into the area from the north during the weekend and into early next week. && Near term /until 6 am Wednesday morning/... as of 955 PM Tuesday...overall intensity and coverage of rainfall has diminished over the past couple of hours. However...the 3 km hrrr and rap models all indicate precipitation will again increase in intensity around 09z or so and have indicated a slight drop in pop/quantitative precipitation forecast for the next several hours...ramping back up toward morning. Flood Watch remains in effect with heavier bands of rain offshore that should arrive in the morning. Continued with a slight chance of thunderstorms and some concern about rotating cells later tonight as surface trough approaches coast with good low-level shear/helicity developing near the trough. Based on current temperatures...have lowered minimum temperatures a couple of degrees across the board as many inland spots already in the upper 50s with low 60s coast...except upper 60s Outer Banks. Temperatures should not drop much further given the extensive cloud cover. && Short term /6 am Wednesday morning through 6 PM Wednesday/... as low pressure trough moves inland, rain will continue heavy at times through Wednesday morning in an axis of deep moisture. Upper low to the west gradually weakens/fills and deeper moisture lifts NE during the afternoon. Should see at least lingering light rain into the afternoon over inland areas with the potential for heavier rain and flooding nearer the coast continuing. Expect little if any appreciable low/middle level drying during the afternoon given weak mixing so cloudy skies likely linger through the afternoon which will cap highs in the middle or upper 60s inland. Warm south flow at the coast may boost temperatures into the middle 70s despite precipitation. && Long term /Wednesday night through Tuesday/... as of 230 PM Tuesday...long term period will begin unsettled with heavy rain and localized flooding possibly ongoing Wednesday night...then mainly dry with near or above normal temperatures through the rest of the week into the weekend. Widespread heavy rain ends Wednesday night as low pressure at the surface and aloft weakens moving north of the region. Will keep in chance probability of precipitation with area still under influence of weak upper level energy and weakening upper low. Chances of heavier widespread precipitation should be significantly less and only scattered activity expected associated with drier air under weak subsidence. Upper level ridging expected late in the week and into the weekend with mainly dry conditions with low probability of precipitation forecast. Low level thicknesses support high temperatures in the lower 80s. Nighttime temperatures should drop back into the 60s under light to calm wind conditions. && Aviation /02z Wednesday through Sunday/... short term /through 18z Wednesday/... as of 625 PM Monday...now reporting MVFR ceilings at kiso in an area of heavier rainfall. Expect additional taf sites to gradually drop to MVFR this evening and to IFR later tonight as steady precipitation continues. Expect IFR to low end MVFR to linger through much of Wednesday morning before mixing tends to erode the lowest cloud layers by early Wednesday afternoon. Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... as of 230 PM Tuesday...sub VFR conds expected Wednesday night with scattered to widespread low clouds and rain. Improving conditions on Thursday as rain and low clouds exit though scattered showers still possible on Thursday. Could be late night fog or stratus late in the week each night as winds will be light to calm with partly cloudy or clear skies. && Marine... short term /through Wednesday/ as of 10 PM Tuesday...strong gusty north/north-northeast winds continue...gusting as high as 35 knots at Diamond buoy and well into the 20s at other spots. No changes needed to current advisories which continue into Wednesday on the far northern and southern waters and Pamlico Sound and into Thursday in the Middle Waters. Seas also continue rough with 7 feet 13 miles east of Oregon Inlet and 8 feet at Diamond buoy. Winds will veer east/southeast and slowly diminish with the approach of the trough to the coast on Wednesday but 6+ feet seas will linger through Wednesday afternoon. Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... as of 230 PM Tuesday...Small Craft Advisory conditions will end first in the southern waters then the northern waters as southerly winds diminish to 5-15 knots highest northern waters. This will allow for seas to slowly subside Wednesday night. Winds become northerly again around 15 knots by Thursday night and remain through the weekend with seas 2-5 feet highest northern and central coastal waters. Still some uncertainty on strength of these northerly winds and possibility exists of marginal Small Craft Advisory conds in later forecasts. && Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... NC...Flood Watch through Wednesday evening for ncz045>047-080-081- 092>095-098-103-104. Marine...Small Craft Advisory until noon EDT Wednesday for amz135-156- 158.
