…BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 1 AM CDT MONDAY
THROUGH LATE MONDAY NIGHT…

* LOCATION…Lake Michigan beaches in Illinois.

* HIGH WAVE ACTION AND DANGEROUS SWIMMING CONDITIONS EXPECTED.

* FORECAST WAVE HEIGHTS…3 to 5 feet.

* STRONG RIP CURRENTS AND STRUCTURAL CURRENTS EXPECTED.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

Life threatening waves and currents are expected at the beaches.
People visiting the beaches should stay out of the water.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.

Structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. Structural currents can
sweep you into deeper water along the pier structure.

Exposed beaches are more likely to experience the most
significant wave and current impacts. Impacts at beaches with
protective breakwalls or jetties will be subject to the
orientation of structures as well as wind and wave direction.

…BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT IN EFFECT FROM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH
LATE MONDAY NIGHT…

The National Weather Service in Milwaukee/Sullivan has issued a
Beach Hazards Statement for dangerous swimming conditions…Which
is in effect from Monday morning through late Monday night.

* HIGH WAVE ACTION… Large waves and dangerous currents are
expected. Conditions are life threatening.

* STRONG STRUCTURAL CURRENTS…Expected.

* STRONG LONGSHORE CURRENTS…Expected.

* RIP CURRENTS…Expected.

* LOCATION…Beaches from Port Washington to Kenosha. Beaches with
particularly dangerous conditions include…

North Beach in Port Washington…

South Beach in Port Washington…

Harrington State Park Beaches…

Atwater Beach in Milwaukee…

Bradford Beach in Milwaukee…

North Beach in Racine…

Zoo Beach in Racine…

Sam Myers Beach in Racine…

Wind Point Lighthouse Beach in Racine…

Eichelman Beach in Kenosha…

Southport Park Beach in Kenosha…

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

Structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. Structural currents can
sweep you out into deeper water along the pier structure.

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.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.
