Warnings & Notices

Beach Hazard Statement, Air Quality Alert

Expires 9:45 AM CDT on June 28, 2016
Statement as of 4:05 PM CDT on June 27, 2016

... Beach hazards statement in effect from 1 am CDT Tuesday
through late Tuesday night...

The National Weather Service in Chicago has issued a beach
hazards statement... which is in effect from 1 am CDT Tuesday
through late Tuesday night.

* Location... northeast Illinois and Northwest Indiana beaches.

* Forecast wave heights... 4 to 7 ft.

* Strong rip currents and structural currents expected.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Life threatening waves and currents are expected at the beaches.
People visiting the beaches should stay out of the water.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.

Structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. Structural currents can
sweep you into deeper water along the pier structure.

Exposed beaches are more likely to experience the most
significant wave and current impacts. Impacts at beaches with
protective breakwalls or jetties will be subject to the
orientation of structures as well as wind and wave direction.

Public Information Statement

Statement as of 1:59 am CDT on June 28, 2016

... NOAA Weather Radio system upgrade...

At 7:00 am CDT Tuesday June 28, the National Weather Service
office in Romeoville will implement a major upgrade to the system
which produces the broadcast programs for NOAA Weather Radio. A
new computer system will be used to generate the audio recordings
of the forecasts, observations, watches and warnings which are
routinely heard over the air. The actual broadcast programming
will remain unchanged, but listeners may notice that the messages
are being read in a different voice.

Thank you for using NOAA Weather Radio.
