Port Aransas Jetty Tides:

.Outlook (Days 3-5)...A weak northerly flow behind the front
Sunday night will become more moderate on Monday, as a surface
ridge builds into Texas. Drier air from the ridge will end rain
chances on Monday; however the high will move rapidly to the east
late Monday, with areas of fog and drizzle expected Monday night
and Tuesday morning as a warm front moves into the area. The warm
front will move north Tuesday, resulting in warmer temperatures
through mid week. Another upper level disturbance and cold front
will approach Texas on Wednesday and Wednesday night, resulting in
another chance for showers and thunderstorms overnight Wednesday

* 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.
