.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

Increasing tropical moisture is forecast to bring better storm

Stronger easterly flow early this week may bring an increase threat
for strong rip currents, before decreasing late this week as the
easterly winds decrease.

No other hazardous weather is expected at this time.
