ACROSS THE COAST. NORTH WINDS BEHIND THE FRONT WILL BRING
DRIER...COOLER...AND LESS HUMID CONDITIONS TO AREA BEACHES THROUGH
MID WEEK.

  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.

* WAVE HEIGHT AND PERIOD FORECASTS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF DEEP OCEAN
  WAVES OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS...NOT SURF CONDITIONS.
