.Outlook (Days 3-5)...
A strong to very strong onshore flow can be expected through Tuesday
and moderate to strong thereafter. Temperatures will range from the
upper 70s to the lower 80s through the period.

* 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.
