.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...DRY ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS SATURDAY. GENERALLY LIGHT TO MODERATE ONSHORE FLOW
EXPECTED THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. INCREASING FLOW EXPECTED SATURDAY AS
AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE APPROACHES THE SOUTHERN PLAINS. SEAS
GENERALLY AROUND 3 FEET NEAR THE SURF ZONE.

* 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.
