.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...
A WEAK COLD FRONT WILL ENTER THE REGION EARLY FRIDAY RESULTING IN A
MODERATE EASTERLY FLOW. MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH MILD TEMPERATURES CAN BE
EXPECTED THROUGH THE WEEKEND. THERE IS A CHANCE FOR RAIN OR SHOWERS
FRIDAY NIGHT...THEN INCREASING RAIN CHANCES THROUGH THE WEEKEND. A
STRONGER COLD FRONT IS EXPECTED SUNDAY AFTERNOON WITH A STRONG
OFFSHORE FLOW AND COOLER TEMPERATURES DEVELOPING BY SUNDAY NIGHT.

* 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.
