next 6-8 hours  sw winds 15 kt...increasing to 15 to 20 kt late. seas 2 to 3 ft...building to 3 to 4 ft. isolated showers and tstms late.  
Marine Discussion:
today and tonight...a trough of low pressure inland will progress toward the coast this evening and stall out. south to southwest winds will be breezy today ahead of the trough before lessening and shifting west late tonight. we maintained winds no more than 20 kt...just below advisory levels...but there could be a few gusts near 25 kt...mainly along the charleston county coast and offshore waters. seas should peak near 4 ft...highest east. friday through saturday...nothing out of the ordinary in regards to summertime marine conditions...with a west and sw flow at less than 15 kt as the coastal waters will lie between a poorly defined inland trough and the bermuda-azores high across florida. sunday through tuesday...low pressure moving through the ne quad of the country early next week while simultaneously the sub- tropical atlantic ridge is shunted a little further south. this allows for a cold front to approach early in the week...probably stalling out over or near the coastal waters late in the forecast period. there is a fairly decent tightening of the gradient that occurs...a good 2-3 mb spread from north to south over the local marine zones. it doesn/t look to be strong enough for small craft advisory conditions...but we could be pushing 20 kt at times and seas will be building to 4 or 5 ft. we/ll also need to remain alert for organized t-storms in association with the cold front...mainly late monday into tuesday. &&
