Swells generated by Irma and Hurricane Jose are creating dangerous conditions for swimmers along the New Jersey shore.

A high rip current risk remains in effect until Tuesday evening from Sandy Hook to Cape May.

The National Weather Service says a surf height of 3 to 4 feet is expected to build to 4 to 5 feet.

Forecasters say a moderate to high risk of rip currents is expected to continue through much of the week.
