Morning Beach Conditions

June 3, 2023


MODERATE rip current risk again today 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 at the beaches 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 110 pm today.

Expect mostly cloudy skies today with areas of fog this morning. Temperatures in the low 70s with northeast winds at 10 to 15 mph. Water temperatures: Duck Pier...66. Jennettes Pier...62. Oregon Inlet Marina...69. Avon Pier...69.

If help is needed, know your location and call 911!
