The threat of rip currents along the Atlantic beaches will likely remain high through at least mid-week, according to the hazardous weather outlook. Hazardous boating conditions are expected, especially for the the Atlantic.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away from the shore. They occur most often at low spots or breaks in sandbars and in the vicinity of structures such as jetties and piers.

Anyone headed to the shore is urged to use only those beaches with lifeguards, and to avoid structures such as piers and jetties where the currents can be especially strong.

If caught in a current, swimmers are urged to remain calm and stay afloat while waiting for help. If necessary, swim parallel to the shore and back toward the beach. Do not swim directly against the current.

An enhanced risk of rip currents will continue for much of the week.
