Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory, High Surf Advisory, Beach Hazard Statement, Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 3:42 PM EDT Apr. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement remains in effect until 8 PM EDT this
evening...
... High surf advisory now in effect until 8 PM EDT Tuesday...
... Coastal flood advisory in effect from 10 PM this evening to
8 am EDT Tuesday...

The National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City has issued
a coastal flood advisory, which is in effect from 10 PM this
evening to 8 am EDT Tuesday.

* Hazards... minor coastal flooding along the neause and Pamlico
rivers, high rip current risk and dangerous shore break.

* Location... rip currents and dangerous shore break will occur
along the beaches, especially along east facing beaches. Minor
coastal flooding will occur along the Neuse and Pamlico rivers
and their adjacent tidal creeks tonight.

* Coastal flooding... water level rises up to 2 feet above normal
are possible for locations adjacent to the Neuse and Pamlico
rivers including adjacent tidal creeks tonight.

* Timing and tides... the most likely time for life threatening
rip currents will be a couple hours either side of low tide.
Low tide today will occur around 1215 PM.

* Coastal flood timing... from late this evening through early
Tuesday.

* Impacts... very rough surf will lead to beach erosion...
dangerous shore break and a high threat of rip currents. Water
level rises of 1 to 2 feet producing minor flooding adjacent to
the Neuse and Pamlico rivers.

* Surf height... building to 5 to 8 feet late today and peaking
at 6 to 10 feet tonight into Tuesday.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current remain calm.
Don't fight the current. Swim in a direction following the
shoreline. When out of the current, swim back to shore. If tired,
float or tread water until out of the rip current. If unable to
escape, face the shore and call or wave for help.

Shore break occurs when waves break directly on the beach. The
most common injuries with strong shore break are neck and back
injuries, which most often occur when the powerful surf throws a
swimmer or surfer head first into the bottom. It is extremely
important to protect your head and neck whenever you are in
breaking waves by keeping your hands in front of you at all
times.

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions.

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to produce minor flooding of low areas along the
inland rivers.







312 PM EDT Mon Apr 24 2017

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Tuesday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of eastern North Carolina, including the following
areas, Beaufort, Carteret, Craven, Duplin, Greene, Jones,
Lenoir, Onslow, Pamlico, and Pitt.

* Through Tuesday morning

* rain showers will continue into early Tuesday morning. The rain
may be heavy at times with occasional thunderstorms. The
episodes of heavy rain will lead to a potential for flash
flooding. Storm total rainfall of 2 to 3 inches is expected,
with locally higher amounts up to 5 inches possible.

* Flash flooding is especially dangerous at night as it is very
difficult to see the depth of water on roads.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
