.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL
REMAIN IN THE FORECAST MONDAY ALONG WITH WEAK TO MODERATE ONSHORE
WINDS. A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE THROUGH THE AREA MONDAY NIGHT WITH A
MODERATE TO STRONG OFFSHORE FLOW EXPECTED TUESDAY. A WEAK TO
MODERATE OFFSHORE FLOW WILL OCCUR WEDNESDAY. COOLER TEMPERATURES
WILL BE IN STORE FOR TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY WITH HIGHS IN THE MID
70S.


* 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 OR NORTHEASTERLY
  WINDS EXIST.

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