JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- As families prepare to go outside and celebrate the labor day weekend, keep in mind there's a high risk for rip currents, which creates dangerous swimming conditions at the area beaches.
For a rip current, waves only have to be around 2-3ft high and the weather does not have to be bad. Rip currents often happen the days following storms.
To spot a rip current, look for where foam, seaweed or discolored water is pulled offshore.
If you go to the beach today, make sure to keep a close eye on your kids!
