.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...
A BRIEF SHOWER WILL BE POSSIBLE NEARLY EACH MORNING DURING THE
SECOND HALF OF THE WEEK AND OVER THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND. OTHERWISE...A
MIX OF SUN AND CLOUDS AND SEASONABLY WARM TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED.
HIGHS WILL BE AROUND 90 EACH AFTERNOON WITH LIGHT MORNING WINDS
BECOMING ESE 10 TO 15 MPH DURING THE AFTERNOON. THE RIP CURRENT RISK
MAY INCREASE DURING THE SECOND HALF OF THE WEEK AND OVER THE
HOLIDAY WEEKEND AS LONG PERIOD SWELLS INCREASE SLIGHTLY.

* A LOW RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS THAT ANY RIP CURRENTS THAT DO
  FORM ARE LIKELY TO BE WEAK BUT STILL MAY POSE A DANGER TO POOR
  SWIMMERS. RESEARCH HAS SHOWN RIP CURRENTS ARE TYPICALLY MORE
  FREQUENT IN THE VICINITY OF JETTIES...INLETS...AND PIERS AND
  THESE CAN BE QUITE STRONG ON DAYS WHERE THE OVERALL RIP CURRENT
  THREAT IS LOW...ESPECIALLY IF STRONG SOUTHERLY OR NORTHEASTERLY
  WINDS EXIST.

* SWIM NEAR A LIFEGUARD. IF CAUGHT IN A RIP CURRENT REMAIN CALM.
  DONT FIGHT THE CURRENT. SWIM IN A DIRECTION FOLLOWING THE
  SHORELINE. IF UNABLE TO ESCAPE...FACE THE SHORE AND CALL OR
  WAVE FOR HELP. IF TIRED...FLOAT OR TREAD WATER UNTIL OUT OF
  THE RIP CURRENT.

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