GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — If you plan to get out on the lake Saturday night, be aware of dangerous swimming conditions.

A Beach Hazard Statement and Notice to small craft was issued by the National Weather Service for Mason and Oceana counties through Sunday evening.

Wave heights are expected to reach two to four feet from 6 p.m. Saturday evening through Sunday afternoon.

There will be hazards on the north side of the piers north of Muskegon. These include Stearns Park in Ludington and Mears State Park in Pentwater.

From Sunday to Monday, Storm Team 8 follows a slow moving system bringing widespread rains. Some areas could receive more than an inch of rain, especially north and west of Grand Rapids.

NOAA/NWS

Keep in mind that high waves can pull people off the piers and strong currents can pull swimmers into deeper water.

Be sure to check the flags flying on the beach to see what color they are. Swimmers are advised to exercise caution when a yellow flag is displayed. Red flags indicate that swimming is prohibited.
