RAIN. DAYTIME TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN BELOW NORMAL TUESDAY. THE
UPPER SYSTEM WILL BEGIN TO MOVE EAST OF THE COAST BY WEDNESDAY
EVENING...ENDING RAIN CHANCES. AFTER NEAR TO SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL
TEMPERATURES ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY...A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE
TOWARD THE COAST LATE THURSDAY...BRINGING MORE COOL AIR AND NEAR
BREEZY CONDITIONS TO THE AREA THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY.


* A LOW RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS THAT SURF ZONE CONDITIONS ARE NOT
  EXPECTED TO SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS.
  HOWEVER...LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS OFTEN OCCUR 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.
