The National Weather Service has continued both a Beach Hazards Statement for certain beaches and a Small Craft Advisory into Tuesday for the nearshore waters of Lake Michigan from Grand Haven to the north. With a southwesterly wind, the beaches from Grand Haven to the north will have a high risk of rip currents, especially the beaches that are south of the southern-facing piers and breakwaters. South-southwesterly winds will increase to 15-25 knots (a knot is 1.15 mph) and waves could increase to 3-5 feet, creating dangerous conditions at the beaches. If you are heading to the lakeshore, stay out of the water and off the piers and breakwaters. Also, make sure to check out the colors of the flags that are flying at the beaches.
