Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 4:15 PM CDT on July 23, 2014

Expires 11:00 AM EDT on July 24, 2014


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through Thursday
morning...

* high wave action and dangerous swimming conditions expected.

* Forecast wave heights... waves 5 to 9 ft occasionally to 11 ft.

* Strong rip currents and structural currents expected.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

High wave action makes swimming difficult and can tire even a
strong swimmer quickly.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Structural currents form along piers where longshore
currents and wave action flow into the structure. Rip currents
and structural currents can sweep you into deeper water.

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 orientation of structures as well as wind and wave
direction.

Public Information Statement

Statement as of 2:06 PM CDT on July 23, 2014


... Overall lack of 90 degree heat so far this year and a look back
at July 2012...

Tuesday was only the 3rd official 90 degree day of the year at
Chicago-o'hare and 2nd in Rockford. It was the first 90 degree day
of July for both locations. The long term average for 90 degree
days in July is 8 in Rockford and 6 in Chicago. There are no 90
degree high temperatures forecast in the next several days.
Additionally... the 6 to 10 day outlook from the climate
prediction center is indicating high probabilities for below
normal temperatures. Therefore... it is distinctly possible if not
likely that there will be no more 90 degree days this July for the
area.

Here are some eye-opening stats in the 90 degree department
showing just how different this July has been from the searingly
hot conditions in July 2012. Including July 23rd... there had
already been 18 90+ degree days in Rockford and 16 in Chicago. The
month finished with 21 90+ degree days in Rockford and 18 in
Chicago. Of these... there were 5 days of 100 degrees or higher in
Rockford and 3 100+ days in Chicago. Overall... may through
September 2012 had an incredible 49 90+ days in Rockford and 46 in
Chicago.

The 1-month outlook for August and the 3-month outlook including
August... September and October both favor cooler than normal
conditions. Thus given the lack of 90 degree heat so far this
year... chances are increasing for this year to join
2000... 2004... 2008 and 2009 as the only years since 2000 with
single digit numbers of 90 degree days in both Chicago and
Rockford.
