Watches & Warnings

Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 3:34 PM EDT Jun. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through Sunday
evening...

* high wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.

* Strong structural currents expected.

* Strong longshore currents expected.

* Rip currents expected.

* Location... beaches from St. Joseph to Grand Haven.

* Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions include...

North Beach in South Haven... Holland State Park... Grand Haven
State Park

* overview/potential impacts... westerly winds will increase to
around 20 mph today... which will build waves into the 3 to 5
foot range. Conditions will remain similar into Sunday... with
possibly a better chance at reaching the 3 to 5 foot wave
range. Dangerous swimming conditions develop when waves reach
this height.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

High wave action makes swimming difficult and can tire even a
strong swimmer quickly.

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.
