through tuesday evening...
* high wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.
* strong structural currents expected.
* strong longshore currents expected.
* rip currents possible.
* location...beaches from st. joseph to grand haven.
* beaches with particularly dangerous conditions late tonight

holland state park...
* overview/potential impacts...north winds will increase late
tonight and continue on tuesday. winds will reach the 15 to 25
mph range with some gusts towards 30 mph possible in this time
frame. waves will build into the 4 to 7 range.
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.
