Swimmers are advised to always swim near a lifeguard. If you are caught in rip current, remember to swim parallel to the shore until freed from the powerful current.
Sneaker waves, capable of washing people into the sea from rocks, jetties and beaches, especially during high tide, are also likely during this period. Minor beach erosion may also occur.
The advisory will remain in effect until Sunday at 3 a.m.City News Service contributed to this report.
