CHICAGO — Dangerous waves and currents are expected at Chicago’s beaches Monday.

The day is expected to see strong winds that will build up waves and create dangerous conditions Monday through Tuesday morning, according to the National Weather Service. People should stay out of the water and be cautious along the lakefront, according to the agency.

Waves could hit 4-6 feet tall and will be accompanied by life-threatening currents, making it dangerous to swim and hazardous to boat, according to the agency.

The day will be sunny and warm, though, with an expected high of 83 degrees. Wind gusts could hit 30 mph, according to the National Weather Service.
