Gusty winds will plague the east coast of Florida this weekend as an area of high pressure battles for positioning with Tropical Storm Patty, which will continue to spin near the Bahamas.
Winds will gust between 15 and 25 mph in Jacksonville today through Saturday with gusts up to 30 mph along the beaches. North winds offshore will average between 15 and 20 knots with seas of 3-5 feet and small craft are urged to exercise caution.
This rough surf will also lead to a moderate risk of rip currents at area beaches. Swimmers are advised to swim at lifeguard-protected beaches and to be cautious. If caught in a rip current, remain calm and swim parallel to the coastline. When out of the current, swim at an angle towards shore.
Conditions will improve along the coast on Sunday with diminishing winds as the high builds into the Atlantic Ocean and Patty dissipates near the Bahamas.
