TRENTON, N.J. (AP/PIX11) — Swimmers are urged to use caution when venturing into the water along the Jersey shore.

A high risk for rip currents is in effect through Monday evening.

The National Weather Service says a surf height of 3 to 5 feet along with the wind will combine to create dangerous swimming conditions.

Swimmers are advised to listen to lifeguards and not swim at unguarded beaches.

Rip currents are expected to be powerful along Atlantic beaches starting Tuesday through Sunday due to Tropical Cyclone Cristobal.

The weather agency said the storm will pass well to the south and east of the area, but it will churn up the sea enough to bring an enhanced risk of rip currents as the holiday weekend approaches.
