.Outlook (Days 3-5)...A weak to moderate easterly flow and warmer
conditions are expected to continue into Thursday. Moderate to
strong southerly flow increases on Friday into Saturday, with
scattered showers and thunderstorms possible.

* A high rip current risk means the surf is dangerous for all levels
  of swimmers. Even those using surf or boogie boards are urged to
  use extreme caution. Rip currents are life-threatening to anyone
  entering the surf.

* 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.
