The Beach Forecast Webpage is a website designed for beach goers to easily see hazards and forecasts along various beaches. This webpage is being developed for SR coastal Forecast Offices, and if feedback is favorable will most likely be expanded to other regions as well. This webpage offers rip current risks graphically, descriptions, and actions to take. The webpage also offers UV Index information.

The webpage offers links to the forecasts for the beach areas, water temperature when available, and other information such as links to lightning safety information and local radars.
