AccuWeather: Mostly sunny, but watch for rip currents at the beach

AccuWeather forecast for NYC, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Sunshine and pleasant temperatures return on Wednesday, but use caution if you are visiting the beach.

The National Weather Service says there's a high rip current risk through Wednesday evening.

Anyone visiting the beaches should stay out of the surf. Rip currents can sweep even the best swimmers away from shore into deeper water.

If you enter the surf zone, always have a flotation device with you and swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and float, and do not swim against the current. If able, swim in a direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and yell or wave for help.
