.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...
A WEAK TO MODERATE ONSHORE FLOW CAN BE EXPECTED THURSDAY. A WEAK
COLD FRONT IS EXPECTED TO MOVE THROUGH THE AREA ON FRIDAY BRINGING A
SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS. ONSHORE FLOW QUICKLY RETURNS FRIDAY NIGHT
BRINGING A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ON SATURDAY.
HIGHS WILL BE NEAR NORMAL OVER THE WEEKEND WITH A SLIGHT INCREASE ON
SUNDAY.

* 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.
