(WPRI) — As Hurricane Fiona continues to head north, it’s bringing some rough waters to Southern New England.
The National Weather Service has issued a High Surf Advisory for coastal waters until 6 p.m. Friday with a risk for dangerous rip currents.
While the waves might not look that big at the moment, they’re expected to grow in size breaking between 5-9 feet in the surf zone.
Boaters and surfers are urged to use extra caution on the water. Beachgoers and those looking to get a peak at the waves are being asked to stay off of jetties, away from rocks, and out of the water if possible.
It’s also important to note that since it’s past Labor Day, there are no longer lifeguards out on any beaches.
