BEACHES: A clear and cool start to your Friday at the beaches. Forecast highs today reach the low 70s with plentiful sun. There also is a HIGH rip current risk, and it is not recommended to enter the surf during this time.

THEME PARKS: It is a great day to head to the theme parks. Afternoon highs will reach the upper-70s. Make sure you pack a hat and sunglasses as the sun will be shining bright all day.
