Posted on Friday, May 15, 2020
Enhanced risk of dangerous rip currents at the beaches this weekend
Impacts and Timing: An enhanced risk of rip currents should develop at the South and North Carolina beaches late Friday through Sunday due to the anticipated development of an offshore subtropical cyclone.
Overview: Low pressure developing near the Florida Keys is anticipated to become a subtropical depression or storm this weekend as it moves northeastward between the Carolinas and Bermuda. No direct impacts are expected on our weather, however ocean swells should elevate the risk of dangerous rip currents at our beaches late Friday through Sunday.
