.outlook (days 3-5)...another round of scattered showers and  
isolated thunderstorms are expected monday through tuesday, as a 
surface low and frontal boundary combine with an approaching upper
level trough. as the upper trough and surface low move east late 
tuesday, the onshore flow which develops monday night and 
continues on tuesday will become offshore by wednesday. drier air 
will move into the waters by wednesday, ending the chances for 
rain. daytime highs near the coast will range from around 70 to 
the lower 70s, with low temperatures from the upper 50s to the mid

* 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.
