... High rip current risk in effect through late Tuesday night...

The National Weather Service in Mobile has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect through late Tuesday night.

* Timing... tonight through Tuesday night

* impacts... the combination of increasing winds and swell will lead
to an increasing frequency of deadly rip currents along the beaches
of Alabama and northwest Florida through at least late Tuesday
night.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents.

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.
