General formulas are derived for the conditional mean and variance of a stationary, stochastic process conditional on a given value and slope of a correlated stationary process. Both processes are assumed to be slightly non-Gaussian and the formulas include all lowest order non-Gaussian contributions.

As an application, the mean wave elevation and the associated wave kinematics are determined for a Stokes second-order wave theory. The results are compared to the linear (Gaussian) predictions and the effect of the non-linearities is quantified both for the wave profile and the horizontal wave particle velocities.
