.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...MODERATE NORTH WIND SUNDAY MORNING WILL
GRADUALLY RELAX AND RETURN TO ONSHORE FLOW BY SUNDAY EVENING.
ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS WILL BE POSSIBLE SUNDAY. WINDS WILL
THEN BECOME SOUTHWEST TO SOUTH ON MONDAY...BEFORE VEERING TO THE
NORTHWEST BEHIND A COLD FRONT ON EARLY TUESDAY MORNING. EXPECT
NEAR SEASONABLE TEMPERATURES ON SUNDAY. MONDAY WILL BE
WARMER..WITH HIGHS IN THE LOW 70S...AND TUESDAY WILL BE A FEW
DEGREES COOLER.

* 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.
