.Outlook (Days 3-5)...
Mostly sunny skies with hot and dry conditions will occur Monday
through Wednesday. Expect high temperature in the upper 80s to
around 90 and a generally light onshore flow. An elevated rip
current risk is expected through early in the week with minor
coastal flooding also possible due to long period swells from
Subtropical Storm Alberto.

* 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.
