Surf's Up

As a result of the non-Tropical low pressure system spinning about 450 miles Southeast of North Carolina's coastline, gale force winds, high waves and rough surf are being kicked up from South Carolina to Virginia. Offshore, seas are up to 14 feet. At our beaches in Virginia, waves are up to 8-9 feet along the coast right now. These waves are expected to subside over the next couple of days, but if you're headed out to the beach today for an early start to the holiday weekend, be aware of the rough wave conditions. This low is still not showing signs of becoming sub-tropical, so it will likely weaken and drift northeast over the next couple days.
