TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida's emergency managers are warning swimmers about a high risk of rip currents along the state's Atlantic coast.

According to the state's Division of Emergency Management, a moderate to high risk of rip currents is expected each day through Tuesday from Nassau County south through Miami-Dade County.

A meteorologist with the agency says persistent onshore winds and high waves are raising the risk of rip currents along all of Florida's east coast beaches this weekend. The weather conditions may also be hazardous for small boats.

Red flags flying at a beach indicate dangerous waters.
