Beach Hazards statement in effect today

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Beach Hazards statement to be in effect starting at 10 A.M. This means dangerous swimming conditions are expected along the Lake Superior shoreline due to high wave action and strong rip currents.

This warning is in effect for Minnesota Park Point and Wisconsin Point beaches and is expected to last through this evening. High wave action can make swimming difficult on days such as this. Incoming waves in rapid succession can tire even an experienced swimmer quickly.

Waves will be in the 1 to 3 foot range initially before increasing to 2 to 5 feet this afternoon into the evening..

Please remain out of the water to avoid hazardous swimming conditions.
