.outlook (days 3-5)...scattered showers or thunderstorms will be 
possible sunday with a cold front. the cold front will move 
through sunday afternoon, bringing north winds and cooler 
temperatures through early next week. a weak to moderate northerly
flow is expected monday with winds increasing again late tuesday 
as another front moves through.

* a moderate risk of rip currents means wind and/or wave conditions 
  support stronger and/or more frequent rip currents.  research has 
  shown rip currents are typically more frequent and stronger in the 
  vicinity of jetties, inlets, and piers.

* 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 of northeasterly
  winds exist.

* swim near a lifeguard. if caught in a rip current, remain calm. 
  don't fight the current. swim in a direction following the 
  shoreline. if unable to escape, face the shore and call or 
  wave for help. if tired, float or tread water until out of 
  the rip current.

* wave height and period forecasts are representative of deep ocean 
  waves over the offshore waters, not surf conditions.
