.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...A COLDFRONT IS EXPECTED TO BE OFFSHORE BY
EARLY SUNDAY MORNING. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MAY ACCOMPANY THE
FRONT. COOLER AND DRIER AIR WILL QUICKLY FILTER INTO THE AREA
BEHIND THE FRONT SUNDAY ALONG WITH STRONG OFFSHORE WINDS. A WEAK
TO MODERATE ONSHORE FLOW WILL RESUME SUNDAY NIGHT OR MONDAY AND
CONTINUE THROUGH WEDNESDAY. SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM CHANCES
INCREASE ONCE AGAIN MID WEEK.

* A HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK MEANS THE SURF IS DANGEROUS FOR ALL
  LEVELS OF SWIMMERS. EVEN THOSE USING SURF OR BOOGIE BOARDS ARE
  URGED TO USE EXTREME CAUTION. RIP CURRENTS ARE LIFE-THREATENING
  TO ANYONE ENTERING THE SURF.

* 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.
