.Outlook (Days 3-5)...
Slightly cooler temperatures will greet beachgoers Sunday through
Tuesday as increased moisture leads to more clouds and scattered
thunderstorms.  Highs will generally be in the middle to upper 80s
at the beaches with morning lows in the upper 70s.

* 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.

* A moderate risk of rip currents means wind and/or wave conditions
  support stronger and/or more frequent rip currents.  Research has
  shown rip currents are typically more frequent and stronger in the
  vicinity of jetties, inlets, and piers.

* 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.
