.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE
POSSIBLE WEDNESDAY WITH DIMINISHING RAIN CHANCES THROUGH THE
REMAINDER OF THE WEEK. WEAK TO OCCASIONALLY MODERATE ONSHORE
WINDS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH LATE WEEK. SEASONABLE TEMPERATURES ARE
EXPECTED WITH HIGHS NEAR 90 AND LOWS NEAR 80. THE RIP CURRENT RISK
MAY BECOME ELEVATED BY LATE IN THE 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.
