TODAY AND TONIGHT
RIP CURRENT IMPACT- Breezy north winds will result in rough surf and a southward flowing longshore current along the beaches today. A longshore current flows parallel to the beach and can be strong enough to knock you off the sandbar and into deep water. Avoid swimming near piers and jetties where seaward flowing rip currents will be strong. If you choose to enter the chilly surf, only do so near a lifeguard
WIND AND SEA IMPACT-Hazardous marine conditions for small craft will develop today as a surge of north winds spreads over the local coastal waters. Seas will build up to 7 feet nearshore and 9 feet offshore and in the Gulf Stream. Small craft advisories are in effect for all of the east central Florida waters.
SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY. Winds and seas will increase once again early next week as high pressure builds into Florida behind another strong cold front. Boating and beach conditions are likely to become hazardous for operators of small craft.
