High risk for rip currents along Jersey Shore

Swimmers are urged to use caution along the Jersey Shore.

A high risk for rip currents is in effect through Monday evening.

The National Weather Service says a surf height of 3 to 5 feet along with the wind will combine to create dangerous swimming conditions.

Swimmers are advised to listen to lifeguards and not swim at unguarded beaches.
