The National Weather Service said San Diego County’s coastline is at a high risk of strong rip currents on Saturday that may be dangerous for beach-goers.
Forecasters urge beach-goers to talk to lifeguards before entering the water. There’s special concern about Saturday’s conditions because temperatures will reach up to 100 degrees range in some of the region’s inland areas, pushing large numbers of people to the coast.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration NOAA, about 100 people drown in rip currents every year. Lifeguards in the U.S. rescue another 30,000 swimmers from rip currents each year.
