Swimming in some areas of Lake Michigan is not advised this Memorial Day Weekend.

The National Weather Service issued multiple beach hazard statements and small craft advisories around through Memorial Day due to 25 knot winds, 2 to 8 foot waves, rip currents, dense fog, and the chance of showers and thunderstorms.

As of Monday morning, beaches in Ottawa County have a moderate risk. Muskegon, Oceana, and Mason county beaches have a high risk. Beaches in Manistee, Benzie, and Leelanau counties fall into the moderate category.

In the Upper Peninsula, Schoolcraft County has a high risk, and part of Mackinac County is a moderate risk.
