HIGH AND MODERATE RISK OF DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS EXPECTED
THIS WEEK ON FLORIDA’S ATLANTIC COAST BEACHES
Division of Emergency Management officials are urging beachgoers to use caution this week as a high risk of dangerous rip currents is expected along the state’s Atlantic Coast today, becoming a moderate risk on the Northeast coast by Tuesday. An offshore wind flow and high astronomical tide will also produce a moderate risk for the western Panhandle. Swimming is not encouraged in these dangerous conditions.
