...HIGH SURF ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 8 PM THIS EVENING TO 4 PM
EDT SATURDAY...

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a High Surf
Advisory, which is in effect from 8 PM this evening to 4 PM EDT
Saturday.

* WAVES AND SURF...High surf is expected to develop along the east
  central Florida beaches starting tonight with the arrival of the
  high tide and increasing swells from the northeast. The high
  risk of rip currents will continue through the weekend as well.

* Timing...Rough surf conditions will worsen during the next few
  days as seas and swell periods increase.

* IMPACTS...Large northeast swells from Hurricane Humberto will
  produce rough surf and numerous strong rip currents in the surf
  zone, posing a threat to all swimmers during the next few days.
  Entering the surf is not advised. Minor beach erosion is
  possible near the time of high tide, which will be around 1130
  pm tonight and noon on Thursday.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

There is a high risk of rip currents.

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 jetties and
piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach patrol. Pay
attention to flags and posted signs.

A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area...producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions.
