Watches & Warnings

Wind Advisory
Issued: 3:14 PM EDT Apr. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Wind Advisory remains in effect from 7 PM this evening to 6 am
EDT Tuesday...

* winds... east 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to 45 mph.

* Timing... late this evening and tonight.

* Impacts... secure any loose items such as patio furniture and
any small objects that may become projectiles.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Wind Advisory means that sustained winds of 31 to 39 mph or
gusts in excess of 45 mph are expected. Winds this strong can
make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. Use
extra caution.





High Surf Advisory
Issued: 3:42 PM EDT Apr. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement remains in effect until 8 PM EDT this
evening...
... High surf advisory now in effect until 8 PM EDT Tuesday...

* hazards... high rip current risk and dangerous shore break.

* Location... all beaches but especially along east facing
beaches.

* Timing and tides... the most likely time for life threatening
rip currents will be a couple hours either side of low tide.
Low tide today will occur around 1215 PM.

* Impacts... very rough surf will lead to beach erosion...
dangerous shore break and a high threat of rip currents.

* Surf height... building to 5 to 8 feet late today and peaking
at 6 to 10 feet tonight into Tuesday.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current remain calm.
Don't fight the current. Swim in a direction following the
shoreline. When out of the current, swim back to shore. If tired,
float or tread water until out of the rip current. If unable to
escape, face the shore and call or wave for help.

Shore break occurs when waves break directly on the beach. The
most common injuries with strong shore break are neck and back
injuries, which most often occur when the powerful surf throws a
swimmer or surfer head first into the bottom. It is extremely
important to protect your head and neck whenever you are in
breaking waves by keeping your hands in front of you at all
times.

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions.
