Morning Beach Conditions

June 14, 2021

 

MODERATE rip current risk at the beaches of Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head, Pea Island, Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon, and Buxton. Only experienced surf swimmers who know how to escape a rip current should enter the water. Never swim alone and always take flotation!

LOW rip current risk south of Cape Hatteras including Frisco, Hatteras Village, & Ocracoke. While the risk for rip currents is low, life-threatening rip currents may still be present.  Remember LOW risk does not mean NO risk!

Strongest rip currents often occur a couple hours either side of low tide, which is around 440 pm today.

Mostly sunny today. High temperatures in the lower 80s with east to northeast winds around 5 mph.

If help is needed call 911.
