Southampton - Although weather experts are predicting the eye of Hurricane Bill is not likely to reach the shores of the East End, effects of its proximity some 200 miles away are expected to kick up ocean waves across the region Friday and Saturday.

High surf and strong rip currents are expected to dominate the beachfront on Friday as the category three hurricane passes southeast of Montauk Point. Strong winds and rains are also expected Friday night as the effects of the hurricane meet up with a stalled front just west of New York City.

In addition to the charged surf, residents can expect some coastal flooding as high tides play into the mix. In short, swimming and boating are strongly suggested to be passed over this weekend until weather conditions return to calm.
