GRAND HAVEN, Mich. — According to the National Weather Service, 3-5 foot waves and a current with a strong undertow is expected to develop Tuesday afternoon and evening, with the most dangerous areas in Grand Haven and anything south of it.

The large waves are expected to wash onto the piers, which could make these areas slippery.

Beach visitors should proceed with caution when walking in those areas.

The waves are expected to get a little choppy towards Big Sable and Little Waves, with the wave size projected to fall to 2-4 feet.

Anyone attending the beach in West Michigan south of Grand Haven tomorrow should proceed with extreme caution, with many areas expected to be dangerous to swim in, as seen in the tweet above.
