.Outlook (Days 3-5)...
Isolated showers and thunderstorms may occur over the surf zone and
farther offshore Sunday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be
possible Monday and Tuesday. A weak to moderate onshore flow is
expected during the period. Highs will be in the upper 80s to lower
90s, with lows in the lower 80s.

* A moderate risk of rip currents means wind and/or wave conditions
  support stronger and/or more frequent rip currents.  Research has
  shown rip currents are typically more frequent and stronger in the
  vicinity of jetties, inlets, and piers.

* Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, remain calm.
  Don`t fight the current. Swim in a direction following the
  shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or
  wave for help. If tired, float or tread water until out of
  the rip current.

* Wave height and period forecasts are representative of deep ocean
  waves over the offshore waters, not surf conditions.
