next 6-8 hours  sw winds 15 kt. seas 2 to 3 ft.  
Marine Discussion:
tonight...a cold front will begin to approach the local waters from the northwest late. as it does...winds will turn more southwesterly with time with a bit of nocturnal surging noted. however...conditions are expected to remain below small craft advisory thresholds. winds may reach 15-20 kt near 20 nm in the charleston county waters...but most locations will be 10-15 kt or a solid 15 kt. seas will generally be 2 ft within 20 nm and 2-3 beyond. a fairly weak gradient will exist monday/monday evening before a cold front drops through the waters. high pressure building from the north will tighten the surface pressure gradient and will enhance marine boundary layer mixing late monday night through late week. this will support hazardous winds/seas...especially tuesday-wednesday as a coastal trough enhances the gradient. small craft advisory conditions are all but certain across all or portions of the waters tuesday and wednesday...and sca conditions could persist through late week. rip currents...an elevated risk for rip currents could develop on area beaches tuesday through late week. &&
