The **RAIN-Train** has started back up again here on the coast...
Got a "Lull" between 6AM and then the Train started back up around 2:20/3PM, and It's NOT stopping, and getting heaver as the afternoon goes on...
Not yet including, the Models that have yet, MORE rain, Modeled for wensday through Friday, Almost Non-STOP!
Marine forcast looks quite, well, you don't wanna to go too the beach currently..
High rip current risk in effect from Wednesday morning through
Wednesday evening...

Large southeasterly swells combined with an onshore wind will produce
a high risk of dangerous rip currents for all area beaches Wednesday. The
rip currents could be potentially life threatening... particularly
in a 2 hour window around low tide which will occur around 645 PM
Wednesday evening.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing away from
shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach
patrol. Pay attention to flags and posted signs.

In Addition......

Flash Flood Watch in effect from Wednesday morning through
Friday morning...

The National Weather Service in Wilmington has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of southeast North Carolina and
northeast South Carolina... including the following areas... in
southeast North Carolina... Bladen... Brunswick... Columbus... New
Hanover... Pender and Robeson. In northeast South Carolina...
Darlington... Dillon... Florence... Georgetown... Horry... Marion...
Marlboro and Williamsburg.

* From Wednesday morning through Friday morning

* areas of low pressure along with abundant tropical moisture will
continue to stream north along an old frontal boundary through
Friday. Several more rounds of heavy rainfall are expected to
develop beginning late tonight and continuing through Friday
morning. With the area having received excessive rainfall the past
couple of days... grounds remain saturated... along with swollen
creeks and streams. An additional six to ten inches of rain
could lead to flash flooding across the area.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means there is a potential for flash flooding
based on current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts
and be alert for possible flash flood warnings. Those living in
areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should
flooding develop.

A record rainfall for September 27th was broken yesterday... with
10.33 inches falling at the Wilmington ASOS. This breaks the
previous record of 7.49 inches set back in 1958.

The total of 10.33 inches is the second highest rainfall ever
recorded in a calender day in Wilmington dating back to 1871. The
record is 13.38 inches established back on September 15th 1999 from
hurricane Floyd.

Highest daily precipitation since 1871

1. 13.38 inches 9/15/1999
2. 10.33 inches 9/27/2010
3. 9.56 inches 8/31/2006
4. 9.52 inches 9/29/1938
5. 8.04 inches 8/18/1879
6. 7.69 inches 6/25/1945
7. 7.49 inches 9/27/1958

One great side effect, the Temps are COOL!, currently 67...
This **Should** bring SST's down a few degrees and get the fish, ie: SPOTS to start moving in thier annual Migration south, not also to mention, King Mackeral, Spanish/ Mullet/ and every other fish you can think of...
ALSO, Moving the SHRIMP outta the creeks & Sounds, Hopefully a couple of My buddies, whom catch shrimp, depending on the Seas, (If they can get out), will be catching a huge bounus of Shrimp. Maybe a Lowering of Prices also...

Next pic up our Rain Train coming....
