* overview/potential impacts...south to southwest winds will
continue through the day before diminishing this evening. this
will cause hazardous waves for swimming of 3 to 6 feet.
conditions will gradually improve tonight.
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.

new beach hazards statement...
