A National Weather Service warning about high rip currents will be in effect until 8 p.m. Sunday for Miami-Dade and Broward beaches.
“Life-threatening rip currents will pose a hazard to swimmers,” the NWS’s Coastal Hazard Message from 2:37 a.m. Saturday says.
The NWS’s advice for dealing with rip currents:
▪ Beach patrol flags and signs will tell you where waters are most dangerous (low spots around sandbars, around jetties and piers). Pay attention.
▪ Swim near a lifeguard.
▪ If a rip current gets you, don’t swim against it. Relax, float or swim in a direction following the shoreline.
▪ If you realize you can’t get out, yell or wave for help.
The chance of precipitation Saturday and Sunday throughout South Florida ranges from 60 to 80 percent until Sunday night.
