SUNDAY...WITH INCREASING CLOUDS MONDAY. ONSHORE FLOW WILL BEGIN TO
INCREASE HUMIDITY LEVELS LATE SATURDAY INTO SUNDAY. AT THIS
TIME...THE RIP CURRENT RISK IS FORECAST TO REMAIN LOW.

* A LOW RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS THAT SURF ZONE CONDITIONS ARE NOT
  EXPECTED TO SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS.
  HOWEVER...LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS OFTEN OCCUR IN THE VICINITY
  OF JETTIES...INLETS...AND PIERS.

* WAVE HEIGHT AND PERIOD FORECASTS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF DEEP OCEAN
  WAVES OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS...NOT SURF CONDITIONS.
