...beach hazards statement in effect from 2 pm edt this afternoon
through sunday afternoon...
the national weather service in grand rapids has issued a beach
hazards statement for dangerous swimming conditions...which is in
effect from 2 pm edt this afternoon through sunday afternoon.
* high wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.
* strong structural currents expected.
* strong longshore currents expected.
* rip currents expected.
* location...beaches from st. joseph to manistee.
for north flow use:
north beach in south haven...
holland state park...
muskegon state park...
mears state park in pentwater...
stearns park in ludington.
* overview/potential impacts...winds will become north to
northeast this afternoon at 15 to 25 knots and continue through
most of sunday. this will build waves to between 4 to 7 feet.
these conditions in combination with the very cold water will
make being in the water hazardous.
precautionary/preparedness actions...
high wave action makes swimming difficult and can tire even a
strong swimmer quickly.
structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. structural currents can
sweep you out into deeper water along the pier structure.
a longshore current is a lake current that moves parallel to
shore. longshore currents can be strong enough to prevent
swimmers from being able to keep their feet on the bottom...
making it difficult to return to shore.
rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore...which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.
