... High rip current risk remains in effect through Tuesday
afternoon...

* timing... today through Tuesday afternoon.

* Winds... northwest to north increasing to 15 to 20 mph tonight and
persisting through Tuesday.

* Impacts... more frequent... dangerous to potentially deadly rip
currents along the beaches of Alabama and northwest Florida
through early Tuesday... but threat gradually diminishing.

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.
