An area that the National Hurricane Center was monitoring last week is still bringing beach hazards from the southeast Atlantic coast through the middle Atlantic. Beach hazard statements remain in effect through early Monday morning. If you're celebrating Memorial Day by the water know your beach hazards and what the beach flags mean:

Here's a look at where we have weather alerts along the coast. The Beach Hazards Statement is for dangerous rip currents and large breaking waves through this evening. This means it is especially dangerous for swimmers.

Rip currents could be possible along most of the East Coast, with the Outer Banks, Mid Atlantic, and Southern New England coasts having the greatest risks.

Forecast

As this low moves inland, the rain will move along with it through tonight. Gusty winds will also be impacted by this system. Some of the highest gusts on Sunday are expected in the Carolinas and Virginia.

Flood Risk

Locally, the heaviest rainfall will be much farther inland from the coast. Interior Virginia, West Virginia, and the Appalachians will receive the heaviest rainfall totals.

There is an excessive rainfall outlook through tonight that remains at a level 2, SLIGHT risk, for those in the darker green regions.
