Morning Beach Conditions

LOW rip current risk at all beaches from Duck to Hatteras Village today!

While the risk for rip currents is low, life-threatening rip currents may still be present.  Strongest rip currents often occur a couple hours either side of low tide which occurs around 630 pm today.

Remember LOW risk does not mean NO risk!

Mostly sunny today with high temperatures in the upper 80s.  North of Oregon Inlet expect west winds around 5 mph this morning, then from the south around 15 mph in the afternoon. On Hatteras Island expect northwest winds around 5 mph this morning, becoming south in the afternoon.

If help is needed call 911.
