Watches & Warnings

Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 3:57 AM EDT Jun. 25, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement now in effect through Monday evening...

* 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 Pentwater.

* Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions include...

North Beach in South Haven...
Holland State Park...
Muskegon State Park...
Mears State Park...

* overview/potential impacts... westerly winds of 15 to 25 knots
will be common through Monday. Waves of 3 to 5 feet are expected
today. A brief lull will occur this evening... before waves build
into the 4 to 7 foot range for Monday. Dangerous waves and
currents are expected through Monday evening. With the wind
trending towards northwest... north sides of north piers will be
dangerous places to swim.

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.
