.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...
MODERATE TO GUSTY SOUTHEAST FLOW IS EXPECTED TO OCCUR ALONG AREA
BEACHES THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEK. SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM CHANCES
WILL RETURN BY MONDAY NIGHT AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE WEEK...THOUGH
PROLONGED WIDESPREAD RAINS ARE NOT CURRENTLY EXPECTED. HIGHS ALONG
THE COAST WILL BE AROUND 80 WITH LOWS IN THE LOWER 70S WITH
HUMID CONDITIONS.

* A MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS WIND AND/OR WAVE CONDITIONS
  SUPPORT STRONGER AND/OR MORE FREQUENT RIP CURRENTS.  ONLY
  EXPERIENCED SURF SWIMMERS SHOULD ENTER THE WATER. RESEARCH HAS
  SHOWN RIP CURRENTS ARE TYPICALLY MORE FREQUENT AND STRONGER IN
  THE VICINITY OF JETTIES...INLETS...AND PIERS.

* WAVE HEIGHT AND PERIOD FORECASTS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF DEEP OCEAN
  WAVES OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS...NOT SURF CONDITIONS.
