Rip currents: High risk of rip currents along the Palm Beaches.

coastal flooding during high tides along the Atlantic coast,

elevated risk for rip currents along the Atlantic beaches.

The new moon along with the increasing winds may bring coastal
flooding during high tides along the Atlantic coast over the next
several days.

spotters are encouraged to report coastal flooding along the east
coast beaches to the National Weather Service forecast office in
