THE WAKE OF THE FRONT SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY. WINDS WILL
GRADUALLY DIMINISH MONDAY AFTERNOON AND MONDAY NIGHT. ANOTHER
UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM WILL IMPACT THE COASTAL AREAS TUESDAY AND

GOOD CHANCE FOR RAIN. DAYTIME TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN BELOW
NORMAL. THE UPPER SYSTEM WILL BEGIN TO MOVE
WEDNESDAY...DIMINISHING RAIN CHANCES BY WEDNESDAY EVENING.


* A LOW RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS THAT SURF ZONE CONDITIONS ARE NOT
  EXPECTED TO SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS.
  HOWEVER...LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS OFTEN OCCUR 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.
