... High rip current risk in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a rip
current risk... which is in effect through this evening.

* Timing... rough surf and numerous strong rip currents expected
the entire day. The greatest threat for rips will be from 11 am
through about 5 PM.

* Impacts... strong southeast winds will produce large breaking
waves of about 5 to 6 feet in the surf zone today. Numerous
strong rip currents will also occur. Minor beach erosion is
possible around the times of high tide at around 800 am this
morning and again at about 800 PM this evening.

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 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.
