If you are planning on heading to the beach today, make sure you are aware of the life-threatening rip current risk at all area beaches. This is all thanks to Tropical Storm Henri. 

We won't see a direct impact from Henri, but it will cause seas to range from 2-5ft, and a high risk for rip currents. Make sure you are swimming near an open lifeguard stand. 

Here are some tips if you do get caught in a rip current: 

 By the afternoon, we will see an increase in shower and storm activity, at 40% coverage. The showers and storms will most likely be east of the I-4 corridor and along the coast. 

Stay weather aware and don't forget to hydrate this weekend!
