Watches & Warnings

Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 10:39 PM EDT Aug. 17, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through Friday
evening...

* high wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.

* Strong structural currents possible.

* Strong longshore currents possible.

* Rip currents expected.

* Location... beaches from St Joseph to Holland.

* Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions on Friday include
Holland State Park and North Beach in South Haven.

* Overview/potential impacts... west winds of 15 t0 25 knots will
becoming northwest late tonight and continue into Friday. Waves
of 5 to 7 feet are expected both tonight and on Friday. North
sides of north piers will be dangerous places to swim on Friday.

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.
