Watches & Warnings

Special Statement, Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 2:22 PM EDT Jul. 29, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Funnel clouds possible this afternoon...

Atmospheric conditions are favorable for the development of
isolated funnel clouds... associated with the thunderstorm activity
over parts of northern Illinois and Northwest Indiana. These
funnel clouds normally protrude a few hundred feet downward from
the parent cloud... rotate or spin like a top... and last a few
minutes before dissipating.

These funnel clouds rarely touch the ground and typically do not
pose any sort of hazard. The atmospheric conditions these funnels
are developing in do not support strong or damaging tornadoes.
However... on extremely rare occassions these funnels can briefly
touch the ground and produce minimal if any damage.

The National Weather Service will continue to closely monitor the
situation. Please forward reports of funnel sightings to the
nearest law enforcement agency for relay to the National Weather
Service.

... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through late
tonight...

* location... northeast Illinois beaches and Northwest Indiana
beaches on Northern Lake County.

* Forecast wave heights... 3 to 5 feet.

* Strong rip currents and structural currents expected.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Life threatening waves and currents are expected at the beaches.
People visiting the beaches should stay out of the water.

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.

Structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. Structural currents can
sweep you into deeper water along the pier structure.

Exposed beaches are more likely to experience the most
significant wave and current impacts. Impacts at beaches with
protective breakwalls or jetties will be subject to the
orientation of structures as well as wind and wave direction.
