.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...ISOLATED EARLY MORNING SHOWERS WILL BE
POSSIBLE ALONG AREA BEACHES ...WITH DRY CONDITIONS PREVAILING
DURING MOST OF THE DAYLIGHT HOURS. HOT AND HUMID CONDITIONS ARE
LIKELY OVER THE UPCOMING LABOR DAY WEEKEND WITH HIGHS AROUND 90
AND LOWS AROUND 80. A WEAK TO MODERATE ONSHORE FLOW WILL
OCCUR...WITH THE STRONGEST WIND SPEEDS OCCURRING DURING THE
AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS. THE RIP CURRENT RISK MAY BECOME
ELEVATED AT TIMES OVER THE WEEKEND.

* 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.
