High surf, rip current warnings in effect as multiple factors make for rough waves at the Jersey Shore

High surf and rip current warnings are in effect across beaches at the Jersey Shore, at least through Tuesday, as a combination of factors are sending waves up to eight feet tall to the shore.  
The usually crowded Inlet Beach in Manasquan is deserted today, as the waves are too rough, even for the surfers.
Strong northeast winds, as well as Hurricane Teddy, are spinning hundreds of miles offshore near Bermuda.
Some beaches remain unguarded, and chilly winds and blowing sand are keeping the crowds away.
