.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...BRISK NORTHERLY WINDS ON WEDNESDAY WILL GRADUALLY
DECREASE IN INTENSITY THROUGH THE DAY UNDER PLENTIFUL SUNSHINE...BUT
WITH COOL TEMPERATURES IN THE 50S. CHRISTMAS DAY WILL FEATURE A
RETURN TO SOUTHERLY WIND SPEEDS WITH HIGHS IN THE 60S. A WARMING
TREND WILL OCCUR FRIDAY BEFORE ANOTHER COLD FRONT PUSHES THROUGH
THE AREA OVER THE WEEKEND. THE RIP CURRENT RISK IS CURRENTLY
EXPECTED TO REMAIN LOW THROUGH THE WEEK.

* 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.
