Winds are strong and gusty from the northwest this afternoon. They have been running 15 to 25 mph with higher gusts. This increases the rip current risk. Also it is very hot at the beaches with temperatures in the mid 90s. No sea breeze is forecast to develop this afternoon due to the dominant northwest wind. Not a cloud in the sky so double up on the sunscreen.
