FYI if you are near the UNCW campus tomorrow...there will be a test of their outdoor siren system at 12pm tomorrow (10/06/2021). While there is no severe weather threat, this would be a great chance to check your own personal severe weather plans (where do you go, how do you keep yourself and family safe, how would you communicate)! #ReadyNHC

For your weekend weather planning from US National Weather Service Wilmington NC:

• Swells from distant Hurricane Sam will result in life-threatening rip currents to all area beaches this weekend.
• While strong rip currents over expected over the next few days, the best chance of significant impacts will be Saturday and Sunday.
• Please note that historically some of the worst rip current events have occurred coincident with the best weather.
• The dry and warm forecast this weekend will result in very nice beach conditions, however the presence of rip currents will make it dangerous to anyone entering the water. Just because the weather is nice doesn't mean the surf will be safe.

Para su planificación meteorológica de fin de semana desde US National Weather Service Wilmington NC:

• Las marejadas provocadas por el lejano huracán Sam provocarán corrientes de resaca potencialmente mortales en todas las playas de la zona este fin de semana.
• Si bien se esperan fuertes corrientes de resaca durante los próximos días, la mejor probabilidad de impactos significativos será el sábado y el domingo.
• Tenga en cuenta que, históricamente, algunos de los peores eventos actuales han ocurrido coincidiendo con el mejor clima.
• El pronóstico seco y cálido de este fin de semana dará como resultado condiciones de playa muy agradables, sin embargo, la presencia de corrientes de resaca hará que sea peligroso para cualquiera que entre al agua. El hecho de que el clima sea agradable no significa que el surf sea seguro.
