SHEBOYGAN COUNTY (WITI) -- The National Weather Service has issued a "Beach Hazards Statement" for dangerous swimming conditions for the beaches in Sheboygan County for Sunday, June 1st.
The National Weather Service says beaches with particularly dangerous conditions include General King Park and Kohler Andrea Beaches.
The Beach Hazards Statement is in effect from 9:00 a.m. through Sunday evening.
High wave action and dangerous swimming conditions with strong structural and lakeshore currents is expected.
Structural currents form along lake piers and can sweep you out lakeward along the pier structure.
A longshore current is a lake current that moves parallel to the shore.
Longshore currents can be strong enough to prevent swimmers from being able to keep their feet on the bottom, making it difficult to return to shore.
The National Weather Service urges beach-goers to not overestimate their swimming ability -- and to take heed to this Beach Hazard Statement.
