8 feet along the northeast Florida beaches.

flood... mainly Parks... campgrounds... .normally flood prone
roadways and some docks and boat ramps. High waves and surf will
lead to beach erosion and minor flooding along the coastal areas
late in the weekend.

A coastal flood advisory indicates that higher than normal tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the St Johns
River and its tributaries.

Rip currents will be life threatening.

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.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current remain calm.
Don't fight the current. Swim in a direction following the
shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave
for help. If tired, float or tread water until out of the rip
current.

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing rip currents and localized beach
erosion.
