.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...
A WEAK TO MODERATE ONSHORE FLOW WILL PERSIST LATE THIS WEEK AND
THROUGH THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND. ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE ALONG THE COAST OVER THE
WEEKEND...BUT AN ALL DAY TYPE OF RAIN IS NOT EXPECTED. HUMID
CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL WITH AFTERNOON HIGHS NEAR 90 DEGREES AND
OVERNIGHT LOWS AROUND 80. THE RIP CURRENT RISK MAY BECOME ELEVATED
OVER THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.

* A MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS WIND AND/OR WAVE CONDITIONS
  SUPPORT STRONGER AND/OR MORE FREQUENT RIP CURRENTS.  ONLY
  EXPERIENCED SURF SWIMMERS SHOULD ENTER THE WATER. RESEARCH HAS
  SHOWN RIP CURRENTS ARE TYPICALLY MORE FREQUENT AND STRONGER IN
  THE VICINITY OF JETTIES...INLETS...AND PIERS.

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