.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...
DRY ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS EXPECTED SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY. COOLER
MONDAY WITH HIGHS IN THE LOWER 60S. WEAK ONSHORE FLOW EXPECTED TO
DEVELOP SUNDAY. HOWEVER...ANOTHER COLD FRONT WILL MOVE ACROSS THE
WATERS SUNDAY NIGHT OR MONDAY MORNING AND CONTRIBUTE TO MODERATE TO
STRONG OFFSHORE FLOW. A WEAK ONSHORE FLOW IS EXPECTED BY TUESDAY
NIGHT.

* 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.

* 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.
