MARINE CONDITIONS, LOW TO MODERATE RIP CURRENTS LONG ISLAND

With many schools closed today due to the Jewish religious holy days, this might be a good day to head to the beach with the weather being almost picture perfect.

The gusty winds of yesterday have dropped off and there are no advisories for the coastal waters today or probably for the next several days. Lots of sunshine until further notice. There  is a low risk of rip currents from Fire Island eastward today and a moderate risk this afternoon west. For New Jersey there is a low risk of rip currents. Make sure you swim where safe and with lifeguards as many beaches now have no lifeguards on duty.
