According to the National Weather Service the proximity of an upper level trough in combination with deep tropical moisture will maintain unstable conditions throughout the day with scattered showers and thunderstorms expected across the region from time to time. Some of these showers could result in ponding of water on roadways and in low-lying areas. High temperatures will range from the upper 80s to low 90s under a southeasterly wind flow.
Across the local waters, seas up to 6 feet are expected across the outer Atlantic waters. Therefore, small craft operators should exercise caution. Across the rest of the waters, seas of 5 feet or less are expected. Winds up to 10 knots are expected across all of the local waters. A low risk of rip currents will prevail across most of the beaches.
