30th November 2018 – The National Weather Service has indicated that low level clouds accompanying a weak easterly trough will continue to exit the region during the evening hours leaving partly cloudy to mostly clear skies over land areas. Occasional passing showers may continue to affect the coastal waters and some may reach the north and east coastal sections of a few of the islands from time to time.
Across the regional waters, a northwest swell and increasing trade winds will help create seas between 6 to 8 feet across the Atlantic waters and passages. A small craft advisory is in effect for the offshore Atlantic waters through Saturday afternoon. Moderate to fresh east to northeast trades will continue through the weekend. A high risk of rip currents is expected through Sunday.
Residents and visitors are urged to exercise caution while swimming especially on northern shore beaches. Pay attention to beach safety flags before entering waters.
