.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...DRY ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED
OVER THE SURF-ZONE MONDAY. GENERALLY MODERATE ONSHORE FLOW WILL
DEVELOP MONDAY AND TUESDAY. YET...THE FLOW WILL WEAKEN WEDNESDAY
AS A FRONTAL BOUNDARY ENTERS SOUTH TEXAS FROM THE NORTH. ISOLATED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE ANTICIPATED FOR WEDNESDAY. LOW
TEMPERATURES IN THE 70S ARE EXPECTED. HIGHS IN THE 80S.

* 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.
