High pressure means calm waters off Long Island Wednesday

High pressure building across the Northeast will provide a bit of calm Wednesday for Long Island waters, the National Weather Service said in its marine forecast.

Winds are from the east, ranging from 5 to 15 knots for most areas, and conditions remain below small-craft advisory levels for most of Wednesday, the service's Upton office said.

Wave heights for the South Shore are 2 to 4 feet, with heights of a foot or less for Long Island Sound, Peconic and Gardiners bays, New York harbor and South Shore bays from Jones Inlet through Shinnecock bay.

Water temperatures Wednesday at South Shore beaches ranges from the low to mid 50s, and the risk of rip currents at most ocean beaches is low to moderate, the service said.

Inland high temperatures Wednesday for Nassau and Suffolk counties should be in the mid to upper 60s, with partly cloudy skies, the service said.
