Choppy surf along South Florida’s coastline is creating a high risk of rip currents Sunday.

The National Weather Service issued a high risk advisory Sunday for beaches in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.

“Rip currents will create dangerous conditions for swimmers,” read the advisory. “Several rescues due to rip currents were reported Saturday afternoon.”

The National Weather Service advises anyone caught in a rip current to yell for help, remain calm and do not tire yourself out by swimming against the current. Swim parallel to shore and back toward to the beach when you can.

Expect classic Florida summer weather the next few days, with temperatures in the high 80s and a chance of thunderstorms each day through Thursday.
