.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...SCATTERED/NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED EARLY FRIDAY IN RESPONSE TO A COLD FRONT AND AN UPPER
LEVEL DISTURBANCE. THE COLD FRONT IS EXPECTED TO MOVE ACROSS THE
COASTLINE EARLY FRIDAY MORNING...WITH COOLER AND DRIER AIR
FILTERING INTO THE AREA FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. A MODERATE
OFFSHORE FLOW WILL DEVELOP IN THE WAKE OF THE COLD FRONT BY FRIDAY
AFTERNOON. MODERATE OFFSHORE FLOW WILL CONTINUE SATURDAY YET
DECREASE SATURDAY NIGHT AS THE AXIS OF A SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE
SYSTEM ENTERS THE COAST. WEAK TO MODERATE ONSHORE FLOW WILL
DEVELOP SUNDAY. NO RAINFALL IS EXPECTED SATURDAY AND SUNDAY.


* 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.
