The Memorial Day weekend brings warm weather to the coast, but the National Weather Service warns that water temperatures are still dangerously cold.
Air temperatures Sunday on the coast will reach 60 degrees and are expected to rise even higher on the holiday, up to the mid-60's Monday. In some inland locations, temperatures will climb into the 80s.
Water temperatures, however, are generally still in the mid 40s to mid 50s in the ocean, rivers, lakes and streams. That's easily cold enough to cause hypothermia or cold water shock, which can be deadly within minutes.
The weather service advises wearing a life jacket during water activities, keeping a close eye on children and being aware that alcohol contributes to hypothermia.
