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.
