Dangerous beach conditions for Palm Beach County

The National Weather Service has issued a coastal hazard message for high rip currents along Palm Beach County’s coast through Wednesday morning.

Northeast winds of up to 23 mph are expected with higher gusts as an area of high pressure sits across the eastern U.S. and a developing low pressure system continues to track up the eastern seaboard.

A small craft advisory is also in effect for the Atlantic waters for waves of between five and nine feet with the highest seas in the Gulf Stream. The low pressure system is creating a northerly swell of two to four feet.
