.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...
GUSTY SOUTHEAST WINDS ARE EXPECTED ALONG AREA BEACHES THROUGH
LATE WEEK. ISOLATED SHOWERS AND PERHAPS A THUNDERSTORM WILL BE
POSSIBLE AT TIMES...PRIMARILY DURING THE LATE NIGHT AND MORNING
HOURS. HIGHS ALONG THE IMMEDIATE COAST WILL BE IN THE LOWER 80S
WITH LOWS IN THE LOWER TO MIDDLE 70S ALONG WITH HUMID CONDITIONS.

* A HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK MEANS THE SURF IS DANGEROUS FOR ALL LEVELS
  OF SWIMMERS. EVEN THOSE USING SURF OR BOOGIE BOARDS ARE URGED TO
  USE EXTREME CAUTION. RIP CURRENTS ARE LIFE-THREATENING TO ANYONE
  ENTERING THE SURF.

* 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.
