... High rip current risk in effect from noon CST today through
late Sunday night...

The National Weather Service in Mobile has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect from noon CST today through
late Sunday night.

* Timing... noon today through late Sunday night.

* Winds... east southeast increasing to around 20 knots with higher
gusts this afternoon along the beaches. Winds become more south to
southwest by Sunday and remain strong.

* Impacts... more frequent... dangerous to potentially deadly rip
currents along the beaches of Alabama and northwest Florida this
weekend.

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

If you become caught in a rip current... do not panic. Remain calm
and begin to swim parallel to shore. Once you are away from the
force of the rip current... begin to swim back to the beach. Do
not attempt to swim directly against a rip current. Even a strong
swimmer can become exhausted quickly.
