.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE FROM THURSDAY AND CONTINUING INTO THE
LABOR DAY WEEKEND. TEMPERATURES WILL BE SEASONALLY WARM AT THE
BEACHES WITH HIGHS IN THE UPPER 80S EACH AFTERNOON. LIGHT TO
MODERATE ONSHORE WINDS CAN BE EXPECTED.

* A MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS WIND AND/OR WAVE CONDITIONS
  SUPPORT STRONGER AND/OR MORE FREQUENT RIP CURRENTS.  ONLY
  EXPERIENCED SURF SWIMMERS SHOULD ENTER THE WATER. 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.

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