MODERATE rip current risk at all beaches today from Duck to Ocracoke. Only experienced surf swimmers who know how to escape a rip current should enter the ocean. Never swim alone and always take flotation!

Strongest rip currents often occur a couple hours either side of low tide, which occurs around 1105 am today.

Partly to mostly sunny skies today with temperatures in the upper 60s. Northwest winds 5 to 10 mph. Water Temperatures: Duck Pier...67. Jennettes Pier...66. Oregon Inlet Marina...63. Rodanthe Pier...66. Avon Pier...72.

Ocean Rescue staffing is at off season levels. Most beaches are covered by a roving patrol. If help is needed, know your location and call 911!
