848 AM EDT SAT MAY 30 2015

.NOW...
THERE HAS BEEN LITTLE CHANGE IN THE EASTERLY WIND FLOW PATTERN...
EXCEPT THAT SPEEDS HAVE EASED SLIGHTLY. LOW LEVEL MOISTURE HAS BEEN
INCREASING...SO THERE ARE MORE ATLANTIC CLOUD LINES PRODUCING
ISOLATED SHOWERS. THERE WILL BE A CHANCE OF SHOWERS ACROSS THE AREA
THIS MORNING. DAYTIME HEATING MAY LEAD TO A FEW LIGHTNING STORMS OVER
THE INTERIOR THIS AFTERNOON.

THE MAIN WEATHER HAZARD WILL CONTINUE TO BE RIP CURRENTS. THE SURF
ZONE WILL LOOK MORE INVITING THAN PREVIOUS DAYS DUE TO LESS WIND CHOP
ON THE OCEAN. HOWEVER A 9 TO 10 SECOND SWELL AROUND 3 FEET WILL
CONTINUE TO GENERATE DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS. LOW TIDE IS AROUND
NOON...AND THE GREATEST SEAWARD PULL OF RIP CURRENTS SHOULD OCCUR 3
HOURS EITHER SIDE OF LOW TIDE.

CROWDS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO BE AS GREAT AS LAST WEEKEND...WHEN
LIFEGUARDS HAD TO SAVE HUNDREDS OF OCEAN BATHERS. BUT RIP CURRENTS
SHOULD BE JUST AS STRONG.

IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE GOING TO THE BEACH...MAKE SURE THEY ARE AWARE OF
OCEAN HAZARDS...ESPECIALLY RIP CURRENTS. SWIM ONLY NEAR A LIFEGUARD
AND HEED THEIR ADVICE.  NEVER SWIM ALONE IN THE OCEAN.
