Watches & Warnings

Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 4:11 AM EDT Jun. 29, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement now in effect through this afternoon...

* 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 Manistee.

Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions today include
South Beach in South Haven... Grand Haven State Park... Pere
Marquette Park in Muskegon.

* Overview/potential impacts... southwest winds to 30 mph will
generate waves of 4 to 8 feet this morning. Winds and waves
will gradually subside this afternoon. The most dangerous
conditions today will be on the south side of pier structures.

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.
