2-4 foot surf will lead to a moderate risk of rip currents. Skies are cloudy and rain and thunderstorms will make for a bad beach day. Along the East coast of MA high tide was between 4-5 AM and low tide will be at 1030-1145 AM. This is also the case for the Cape Beaches. Along the South Coast of RI/MA, high tide this afternoon is around 1 PM. Water temperatures are on the rise. For the first time, we see a 60 reading off Newport.
Persistent SW Flow will make SST’s along the South Coast even warmer by early next week. Given the forecast for Sunday, I expect a lot of people to head to the beach. Surf conditions will likely be dangerous with moderate to strong rip currents and 3-5 foot surf. I will update tomorrow.
