High Surf Advisory
Issued: 4:39 PM EDT Sep. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... High surf advisory in effect until 6 PM EDT Saturday...

The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a high surf
advisory... which is in effect until 6 PM EDT Saturday.

* Location... along ocean exposed south and east facing beaches.

* Timing... through early evening Saturday.

* Surf and rip current risk... large waves from Jose will result
in high surf along the ocean exposed coastline. This will also
lead to dangerous rip currents.

* Shoreline impacts... areas of lingering beach erosion.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A rip current... sometimes mistakenly called an undertow... is a
strong but narrow current of water flowing from the beach to the
surf zone. It can rapidly carry a swimmer into deeper water... and
exhaust an individual trying to swim against it.
