    (Published Monday, Aug. 26, 2019)

    Our temperatures remain refreshing today with highs in the 70s inland, in the upper 60s on the coast thanks to onshore wind.

    We continue to have a moderate to high rip current risk on the coastline due to a storm in the North Atlantic, and a persistent onshore wind. Wave heights will be 4-6 feet near the shore, 5-8 feet offshore, and will lower a bit tonight as the wind turns more south.

    A disturbance off the Carolinas will continue to head towards us and will ramp up our waves and surf through mid-week. It's something we will watch as our high tides will be a tad higher as we end the week.

    Tonight our lows drop into the 40s and 50s again. A few more clouds will move in for Tuesday, but due to the wind shift, we will warm to the mid-70s even at the coast.

    Wednesday into Thursday we're tracking scattered showers and storms along a cold front. Our temperatures continue to gradually warm for mid-week, reaching the mid-80s by Thursday or Friday.

    As we head into the Labor Day weekend, we cool just a tad for Saturday into Sunday. Light showers are possible Sunday into Monday, but we're not expecting a washout at this time. Highs will be in the 70s again as we enter into the following week.
