.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...LIGHT SOUTHERLY WINDS...ALONG WITH SOME
FOG...AROUND SUNRISE TUESDAY WILL BECOME STRONG NORTHERLY WINDS
BY MIDDAY AND THROUGH THE AFTERNOON AS A COLD FRONT MOVES SOUTH
THROUGH THE AREA. BRISK NORTHERLY WINDS ON WEDNESDAY WILL
GRADUALLY DECREASE IN INTENSITY THROUGH THE DAY UNDER PLENTIFUL
SUNSHINE. CHRISTMAS DAY WILL FEATURE A RETURN TO SOUTHERLY WIND
SPEEDS.

* 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.
