.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...
LIGHT TO MODERATE SOUTHEAST WINDS AND A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED ON MONDAY. RAIN CHANCES END MONDAY
EVENING...AND WINDS WILL BECOME LIGHT NORTHEASTERLIES AT THIS TIME.
LIGHT WINDS WILL CONTINUE INTO TUESDAY. WINDS WILL STEADILY TAKE ON
A MORE SOUTHEASTERLY COMPONENT AND BECOMING MODERATE TO STRONG BY
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.

* 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.

* 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.
