The persistent onshore wind flow pattern that we have had this week will continue while gradually weakening over the weekend. Moisture is gradually increasing so isolated showers will be present in this onshore flow...affecting the coast as well as inland areas through evening. Though the Memorial Day surf and rip current event is well behind US...a gradual diminishing of easterly winds should start to make the surf look a little more inviting to beachgoers. However...rip currents will be dangerous through the weekend. Additional details...including graphics are available online at: http://www.Srh.NOAA.Gov/mlb/blog.Php

Beach Hazard Statement
Statement as of 3:55 AM EDT on May 29, 2015

... Beach hazards statement in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a beach
hazards statement for life threatening rip currents and rough
surf... which is in effect through this evening.

* Hazards... moderate risk of rip currents and rough surf.

* Timing... rough surf will occur into this evening. The greatest
seaward pull from rip currents will occur around the time of low
tide in the late morning and early afternoon.

* Potential impacts... rip currents and rough surf will cause
hazardous swimming conditions at east central Florida beaches.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement is issued when threats such as rip
currents... longshore currents... rough surf and other hazards
create life-threatening conditions in the surf zone. Caution
should be used when in or near the water.

The best safety advice is to only enter the surf near a lifeguard.

If you become caught in a current... never attempt to swim
directly against it... as you will tire quickly. Instead... tread
water and swim at an angle away from the current. Then once out of
the current... swim directly back toward the beach.
