The National Weather Service is warning that there is a "high risk" of rip tide currents this weekend at New Jersey and Delaware beaches, just as temperatures are expected to climb up into the 90s.

“Remember, the ocean water temperature is only around 60 degrees and many beaches are not yet staffed with lifeguards,” the NWS’s Mount Holly station said on Twitter.
Earlier this week, Atlantic City police and Good Samaritans rescued nearly a dozen young swimmers in separate incidents, after they got stranded in rough waters off the Jersey Shore, as reported here. .
