.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY...ESPECIALLY DURING THE MORNING
HOURS. LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE POSSIBLE. ISOLATED
WATERSPOUTS AND BRIEF GUSTY WINDS WILL BE ALSO BE POSSIBLE. HIGHS
WILL BE IN THE MID TO UPPER 80S. LOWS WILL BE IN THE UPPER 70S TO
AROUND 80.


* 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.
