.Outlook (Days 3-5)...Isolated to scattered showers and
thunderstorms are forecast for Sunday and Monday, as a weak
frontal boundary heads close to the coast. Drier air will move in
on Tuesday, precluding rain chances. High temperatures in the
upper 80s to lower 90s. Lows in the lower 80s. A generally weak
easterly flow will prevail by Sunday night, and continue through
Tuesday, as the frontal boundary moves toward the coast.

* 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 of northeasterly
  winds exist.

* Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, remain calm.
  Don`t 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.
