.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...IN RESPONSE TO GREATER SWELL PERIODS...THE
RIP CURRENT RISK MAY INCREASE DURING THE SATURDAY THROUGH MONDAY
PERIOD. A WEAK TO OCCASIONALLY MODERATE ONSHORE FLOW IS EXPECTED
THROUGH THE PERIOD. WARM TO HOT CONDITIONS EACH AFTERNOON WITH
MAXIMUM HEAT INDEX VALUES AROUND 95F ALONG THE SURF ZONE. NO
SIGNIFICANT PRECIPITATION EXPECTED.


* 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.

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