within the past hour or so at Dare County Airport near Manteo, North

RAINFALL: Rainfall will diminish across the coastal Mid-Atlantic by
early afternoon. Additional rainfall amounts of less than an inch
are possible across Delaware and eastern Maryland. Life-threatening
flooding will continue over portions of eastern North Carolina
that have received record rains from Matthew.

the southeastern and Mid-Atlantic coasts of the United States
during the next couple of days. These swells will likely cause
life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult
products from your local weather office.
