City beaches remained closed Tuesday because of dangerous conditions caused by the storm known as Hermine. 

Officials say the swim ban has been extended to Wednesday. 

The system is still kicking up heavy surf and strong rip currents despite being hundreds of miles offshore.

Storm aside, the city plan this year was to have outdoor pools and beaches open through Sunday.

When the city does allow swimming again at its beaches, lifeguards will be on duty from 10 a.m. till 6 p.m.

Outdoor pools are open today from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Meanwhile, a high wind advisory has been issued by the city with possible gusts of more than 40 mph.

Pedestrians and drivers are being urged to be careful and look out for any flying debris or unsecured objects.  

The high wind speeds can also cause power outages.

As a precaution, officials advise charging your cell phone, gathering supplies and turning your refrigerators and freezers to colder settings.
