.Outlook (days 3-5)...
A moderate south to southeast wind is expected for the weekend.
There will be a slight chance for showers on Sunday and Monday. A 
light to moderate east wind is expected on Monday as a cold front 
approaches the coast...then winds shift to the north and increase to 
moderate levels Monday night. Winds are expected to diminish on 
Tuesday. High temperatures will remain in the lower to mid 70s 
Sunday and Monday with mid 60s for Tuesday. 

* 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.
