MILWAUKEE — The National Weather Service has issued a high swim risk for beaches in Milwaukee and south through Kenosha through Wednesday morning.

The warning is due to persistent breezy northeast winds and waves as high as 3-5 feet, the service said in a social media post Tuesday afternoon.

The NWS also warns of a moderate swim risk from Port Washington up to north of Sheboygan.

The service urges people to avoid being on the north side of area piers and break walls.
