... High rip current risk remains in effect through late Sunday
night...

* timing... through late Sunday night.

* Winds... east increasing to 15 to 25 mph and becoming southeast
tonight then more south to southwest on Sunday.

* 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.
