... Beach hazards statement remains in effect until 10 PM EDT this
evening...

* high wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.

* Strong structural currents expected.

* Strong longshore currents expected.

* Rip currents possible.

* Location... beaches from St. Joseph to Manistee.

* Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions today include...
South Beach in South Haven...
Grand Haven State Park...
Pere Marquette Park in Muskegon.

* Overview/potential impacts... south to southwest winds will
continue through the day before diminishing this evening. This
will cause hazardous waves for swimming of 3 to 6 feet. Conditions
will gradually improve tonight.

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.
