RIP CURRENT IMPACT
 
 
LONG PERIOD NORTHEAST SWELLS WILL PRODUCE A MODERATE RIP CURRENT

POWERFUL CHANNELS OF WATER FLOWING SWIFTLY AWAY FROM SHORE AND  
MOST OFTEN OCCUR AT LOW SPOTS OR BREAKS IN THE SANDBAR AND NEAR  
JETTIES AND PIERS.  
 
IF YOU BECOME CAUGHT IN A RIP CURRENT...YELL FOR HELP. REMAIN  
CALM...DO NOT EXHAUST YOURSELF AND STAY AFLOAT WHILE WAITING FOR  
HELP. IF YOU HAVE TO SWIM OUT OF A RIP CURRENT...SWIM PARALLEL TO  
SHORE AND BACK TOWARD THE BEACH WHEN POSSIBLE. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO  
SWIM DIRECTLY AGAINST A RIP CURRENT AS YOU WILL TIRE QUICKLY.  
 
ALWAYS SWIM NEAR A LIFEGUARD AND DO NOT SWIM ALONE.  
   
WIND AND SEA IMPACT
 
 
A FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL MOVE ACROSS THE WATERS THIS EVENING AND  
OVERNIGHT AND BRING STRONG AND GUSTY NORTHEAST WINDS ACROSS THE  
ATLANTIC WATERS. BOATING CONDITIONS WILL BECOME POOR TO HAZARDOUS  
FOR SMALL CRAFT. SMALL CRAFT ADVISORIES WILL GO IN EFFECT ACROSS  
THE EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA ATLANTIC WATERS TONIGHT.  
   
THUNDERSTORM IMPACT
 
 
THERE WILL BE A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR LIGHTNING STORMS ACROSS THE  
ATLANTIC TONIGHT MAINLY OVER THE WARMER GULF STREAM WATERS.  
   
FIRE WEATHER IMPACT
 
 
LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY AND DRY VEGETATION WILL PRODUCE A MODERATE  
TO HIGH FIRE DANGER ACROSS EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA TODAY.  
   
DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN
 
THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.  
ROUGH AND POUNDING SURF IS EXPECTED AT THE BEACHES THROUGH  
SATURDAY WITH AN ELEVATED RISK FOR RIP CURRENTS. STRONG AND GUSTY  
ONSHORE WINDS WILL ALSO MAKE WIND AND SEAS HAZARDOUS FOR SMALL  
CRAFT OPERATORS INTO THE UPCOMING WEEKEND.
