Watches & Warnings

Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 3:49 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.

* Overview/potential impacts... southwest winds to 15 to 25 mph
this afternoon will become west tonight and Friday. Waves of 2
to 4 feet today will build to 5 to 8 feet for tonight and
Friday. The rip current threat will increase considerably by
tonight and continue 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.
