.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...
A MODERATE ONSHORE FLOW WILL BE COMMON DURING THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND.
ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE
ALONG THE COAST OVER THE WEEKEND BUT ANY PRECIPITATION ACTIVITY
SHOULD BE BRIEF IN NATURE. HUMID CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL WITH
AFTERNOON HIGHS NEAR 90 DEGREES AND OVERNIGHT LOWS AROUND 80. THE
RIP CURRENT RISK MAY BECOME ELEVATED OVER THE WEEKEND INTO EARLY
NEXT 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.
