.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...A WEAK OFFSHORE FLOW WILL OCCUR THURSDAY...
WITH WEAK ONSHORE FLOW RETURNING THURSDAY EVENING. COOLER
TEMPERATURES WILL BE IN STORE THROUGH THE MID TO LATE WEEK...WITH
HIGHS IN THE MID TO UPPER 70S AND LOWS IN THE LOWER TO MID 60S.

* 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.
