NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The National Weather Service in Melbourne said Sunday afternoon that a buoy about 120 nautical miles east of Cape Canaveral reported seas of 21 feet.
According to the National Weather Service, these swells will move toward the east coast of Florida Sunday night and generate large pounding surf of 9 to 11 feet, dangerous rip currents and significant beach erosion.
The National Wear Service in Melbourne said a large and powerful low-pressure system north of Bermuda will bring several days of very dangerous surf (including a high risk for rip currents) to the east-central Florida coastline.
The surf will be dangerous for all levels of swimmers through at least Wednesday – STAY OUT OF THE WATER!
