Winds, surf pick up in Narragansett as Lee makes its way by coastal New England

NARRAGANSETT, R.I. (WLNE) — The winds and surf picked up at Narragansett Town Beach as Post-Tropical Storm Lee made its way by coastal New England on Saturday morning.

The National Weather Service said for people to come watch the waves at a safe distance, as the waves are expected to crash up on the jetty.

Only experienced swimmers and surfers should venture going into the water amid potentially dangerous conditions. The NWS said to never go into water of unknown depth.

Small flags seen around the beach need about 8 to 10 mile per hour winds to flutter. Larger flags, like traditional American flags, take about 19 to 24.

A flag at full staff blowing all the way out is likely 25 miles or higher.
