.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE IN THE LOWER 80S
WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY. MODERATE NORTHEAST WINDS WEDNESDAY WILL
BECOME WEAK THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. THERE IS A MODERATE RISK FOR
DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS ON WEDNESDAY ALONG WITH MINOR COASTAL
FLOODING DUE TO THE COMBINED INFLUENCE OF LONG PERIOD SWELLS
COMING ASHORE AND THE PERSISTENT MODERATE EAST TO NORTHEAST WINDS.

* 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.
