.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...
A MODERATE ONSHORE SATURDAY WILL BECOME MODERATE TO STRONG BY SUNDAY
AND CONTINUE THROUGH MONDAY. SLIGHT RAIN CHANCES SATURDAY WILL
INCREASE SUNDAY AND MONDAY. SLIGHTLY DRIER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED
TUESDAY. HUMID CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL WITH HIGHS IN THE LOWER 80S
AND LOWS IN THE UPPER 70S.

* 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.
