.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...
WARM TEMPERATURES AND A WEAK TO MODERATE ONSHORE FLOW IS EXPECTED
FOR FRIDAY. A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE THROUGH THE AREA FRIDAY NIGHT
PROVIDING A MODERATE TO STRONG NORTHEAST WIND FOR SATURDAY ALONG
WITH COOLER TEMPERATURES. SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL
BE POSSIBLE ALONG AND BEHIND THE FRONT FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY.
THE BOUNDARY WILL MOVE BACK THROUGH THE COAST AS A WARM FRONT ON
SUNDAY PROVIDING ANOTHER CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS.

* 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.
