.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...

EARLY NEXT WEEK WILL BE MUCH WARMER...WITH HIGHS IN THE LOWER 70S
AND LOWS IN THE LOWER 60S. ISOLATED SHOWERS WILL BE POSSIBLE ON
SUNDAY. LIGHT WINDS WILL GENERALLY BE OUT OF THE SOUTH.

* A MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS WIND AND/OR WAVE CONDITIONS
  SUPPORT STRONGER AND/OR MORE FREQUENT RIP CURRENTS.  RESEARCH HAS
  SHOWN RIP CURRENTS ARE TYPICALLY MORE FREQUENT AND STRONGER IN
  THE VICINITY OF JETTIES...INLETS...AND PIERS.

* 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.
