.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...WARM TEMPERATURES CAN BE EXPECTED ON
SATURDAY BEFORE ANOTHER COLD FRONT PUSHES THROUGH SATURDAY
EVENING. RAIN CHANCES WILL INCREASE SATURDAY INTO SUNDAY. BELOW
NORMAL TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER 50S WILL RETURN ON SUNDAY. RAIN
CHANCES WILL END BY MONDAY AS DRIER AIR MOVES INTO THE REGION. THE
RIP CURRENT RISK IS CURRENTLY EXPECTED TO REMAIN LOW THROUGH THE
WEEKEND.

* 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.
