As a precaution, beach goers are urged to stay out of the water and well away from the shore break due to the hazardous wave action.

A high tide of approximately 1.5 feet is expected between 3:57 p.m. and 5:15 p.m. this afternoon. The next high tide of approximately 2.5 feet is expected between 4:53 a.m. and 6:11 a.m. tomorrow morning.
