JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – There is a high risk of rip currents and rough, high surf of 6-8 feet for Northeast Florida as well as Southeast Georgia.

Rip currents are our number one weather-related killer – the currents can sweep even the best of swimmers away from the shore and into deeper water.

The National Weather Service of Jacksonville says there’s a small craft boating advisory in effect because of hazardous boating conditions. Along with the small craft advisory that goes until 5 p.m. Sunday, there is also a High Surf Advisory until 2 p.m.

A much different picture than what we saw last weekend. Photos from our Jacksonville Beach skycam showing crowds gathering at the beach to take advantage of the gorgeous weather last Saturday.
