Weather Alert: Very Warm and Humid into the Evening with Elevated Rip Current Risks

News

A Heat Advisory is in effect away from the coast today with the Heat Index approaching the mid to upper 90s. Make sure to take it easy in the heat today!

There will be a high risk of rip currents at area beaches on Sunday. A rip current is a highly-localized river of water which can carry you away from the beach. If you get caught in a rip current, don’t panic! Swim parallel to the beach to get out of the current. Also, listen to lifeguards as they will often tell you where rip currents have developed.
