.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...AN INCREASING ONSHORE FLOW IS EXPECTED OVER
THE SURF-ZONE SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY. NO SIGNIFICANT PRECIPITATION
IS EXPECTED. LOW TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO RANGE FROM THE LOWER
TO MID 70S...WITH HIGHS FROM NEAR 80 TO THE LOWER 80S.




* 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.
