Watches & Warnings

High Surf Advisory
Issued: 10:53 AM EDT Sep. 26, 2017 – National Weather Service

... High surf advisory remains in effect until 6 PM EDT
Wednesday...

* location... ocean exposed beaches on the south coasts of
Massachusetts and Rhode Island including Cape Cod and the
islands.

* Timing... through Wednesday.

* Surf and rip current risk... long period southerly swells from
distant Hurricane Maria will result in high surf and a high
risk of dangerous rip currents through Wednesday.

* Shoreline impacts... large breakers on area beaches along with
some minor beach erosion.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A rip current... sometimes mistakenly called an undertow... is a
strong but narrow current of water flowing from the beach to the
surf zone. It can rapidly carry a swimmer into deeper water... and
exhaust an individual trying to swim against it.

In addition... viewers of large surf should stay in safe areas
well away from possible splashover. Individual waves may be more
than twice the average wave height... which can sweep a person
into the water from what may seem to be a safe viewing area.
Falling into turbulent and sometimes Rocky Waters can result in
injury that reduces the chance of survival.
