Watches & Warnings

Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 4:11 PM EDT Aug. 29, 2016 – National Weather Service

... High rip current risk now in effect through Tuesday evening...

* locations... the ocean beaches of Kings... southern
Queens... southern Nassau... and southern Suffolk counties.

* Rip current risk... high

* surf height... 3 to 4 feet.

* Lightning risk... none

* timing... through 800 PM EDT Tuesday.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. Talk to lifeguards and beach officials to
learn about any surf hazards and heed their advice. Pay attention
to flags and posted signs and swim in life guarded areas.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore. Once you are away from the force of the rip current...
begin to swim back toward the beach. Do not attempt to swim
directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.




Special Statement
Issued: 3:43 PM EDT Aug. 29, 2016 – National Weather Service

A hot and quickly drying air mass will combine with gusty
northwest winds to create conditions more conducive for fire
spread late this afternoon until close to sunset across the New
York City metropolitan area... western Long Island... and southern
Connecticut.

Relative humidities decreasing to 25 to 35 percent during this
time... while winds gust to 20 to 25 mph... would likely aid fire
spread if ignition occurs.

Stay tuned to NOAA all hazards weather radio or visit our web
site at weather.Gov/NYC for further details and updates.
