.Outlook (Days 3-5)...

Onshore winds are expected to be breezy over the weekend and into
early next week. The strongest winds are likely to occur during the
afternoon and evening hours, with the weakest winds occurring each
morning. Mostly sunny skies are likely to prevail each day with
afternoon highs warming to around 90 degrees at area beaches with
overnight lows around 80.

* 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.

* Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, remain calm.
  Don`t fight the current. Swim in a direction following the
  shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or
  wave for help. If tired, float or tread water until out of
  the rip current.

* Wave height and period forecasts are representative of deep ocean
  waves over the offshore waters, not surf conditions.
