.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...
NORTH WINDS BEHIND THE FRONT WILL BRING COOLER AND LESS HUMID
CONDITIONS TO AREA BEACHES THROUGH MID WEEK.

* 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.

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