Statement as of 2:55 PM EST on February 8, 2016
... High rip current risk remains in effect through Thursday
... High surf advisory now in effect from 7 PM this evening to
1 PM EST Wednesday...
* high surf... surf of 5 to 8 feet can be expected.
* High surf timing... surf is expected to quickly increase at
area beaches this evening and during the overnight hours
Tuesday morning. High surf will likely continue into Wednesday
* High surf impacts... high surf will create dangerous rip

may also result in beach erosion.
* Rip current timing... through Thursday evening.
* Rip current impacts... large breaking surf will result in a
high risk of frequent dangerous rip currents along area

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach
patrol. Pay attention to flags and posted signs.
If you become caught in a rip current... do not panic. Remain calm
and begin to swim parallel to shore. Once you are away from the
force of the rip current... begin to swim back to the beach. Do
not attempt to swim directly against a rip current. Even a strong
swimmer can become exhausted quickly.
A high surf advisory is issued when dangerous water action is
expected along the coast. This includes rough surf... large
breaking waves... rip currents... and strong undertow.
Beach goers are urged to heed lifeguard warnings.
