Rip Current Advisory - Saturday, August 27, 2011 10:00 AM
There is a high risk of rip currents on exposed south-facing coasts today. Rip current risk will be high on all exposed coasts this weekend, and will remain high through the beginning of next week. Depending on Irene’s forward speed, seas may begin building Saturday night and by Sunday could reach 25-35 feet near shore and 40 feet further out to sea, with the highest seas being to the right of Irene’s track. Beach erosion is likely on exposed south-facing beaches from Saturday night through Monday morning.
