.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...WEAK NORTHEAST FLOW AND COOL TEMPERATURES
ARE EXPECTED MONDAY MORNING. THE FLOW WILL BECOME ONSHORE MONDAY

WEDNESDAY.


* 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.
