Wow, what a difference in temps from earlier this week!  The wind has kicked up too and that has our authorities issuing a Red Flag Warning.

The Duluth Fire Department is issuing a Condition Red Flag along the Park Point beaches effective immediately and continuing until 10am tomorrow.

A Red Flag means a High Risk of rip currents. Wind and/or wave conditions support dangerous rip currents. Rip currents are life-threatening to anyone entering the surf. All persons are advised to stay out of the water.

When conditions improve, you will be notified at that time.

Lifeguards are not present at Park Point. All persons regardless of swimming experience are advised to stay out of the water. Be aware of flags at 12th St beach, Lafayette Square, and Park Point beach.

More information on conditions and rip currents can be found by visiting the National Weather Service Duluth website: http://www.crh.noaa.gov/dlh/
