A light south to southeast flow is expected Thursday through Saturday with a brief increase to light to moderate levels each afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 80s with lows in the lower 80s. Isolated showers and thunderstorms will be possible Saturday. * 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 of northeasterly winds exist. * 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. $$ ANM/TMT is the U.S. government's official web portal to all federal, state and local government web resources and services.
