* overview/potential impacts... north to northeast winds will gust
up to 30 mph today. This will create the possibility for rip and
structural currents as well as longshore currents to develop.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Be sure of your swimming ability. Children should not enter the
water unsupervised and without a certified flotation device.
Caution should be used when in or near the water. Pay attention
to flags and signs posted near beach access points and lifeguard
stations.

A longshore current is a lake current that moves parallel to
shore. Longshore currents can be strong enough to prevent
swimmers from being able to keep their feet on the bottom...
making it difficult to return to shore.
