.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...RAIN CHANCES WILL OCCUR DURING THE MIDDLE
AND LATTER HALF OF THE WORK WEEK INTO THE WEEKEND. OTHERWISE...HOT
AND HUMID DAYTIME CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE. EAST AND SOUTHEAST
WINDS WILL BECOME LIGHT DURING THE OVERNIGHT AND MORNING HOURS AND
THEN MODERATE EACH AFTERNOON. THE RIP CURRENT RISK MAY BECOME
ELEVATED AT TIMES THROUGH LATE WEEK.


* 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.
