.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...A MODERATE TO STRONG ONSHORE FLOW WILL
PERSIST FROM SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY. ISOLATED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE ALONG THE COAST SUNDAY BUT ANY
PRECIPITATION ACTIVITY SHOULD BE BRIEF IN NATURE. HUMID CONDITIONS
WILL PREVAIL WITH AFTERNOON HIGHS NEAR 90 DEGREES AND OVERNIGHT
LOWS AROUND 80. THE RIP CURRENT RISK MAY BECOME ELEVATED SUNDAY
INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.


* 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.

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