.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...RAIN CHANCES INCREASE FRIDAY...AND CONTINUE
INTO THE WEEKEND...WITH THE BEST CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION ON
SUNDAY AS A FRONTAL BOUNDARY MOVES INTO NORTHERN PORTIONS OF SOUTH
TEXAS. A MODERATE RISK FOR RIP CURRENTS WILL EXIST ON
FRIDAY...WITH THE RIP CURRENT RISK DIMINISHING ONLY SLIGHTLY FOR
THE WEEKEND AS ONSHORE FLOW DIMINISHES. EXPECT HIGHS IN THE 80S
AND LOWS IN THE 70S.

* A MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS WIND AND/OR WAVE CONDITIONS
  SUPPORT STRONGER AND/OR MORE FREQUENT RIP CURRENTS.  ONLY
  EXPERIENCED SURF SWIMMERS SHOULD ENTER THE WATER. RESEARCH HAS
  SHOWN RIP CURRENTS ARE TYPICALLY MORE FREQUENT AND STRONGER IN
  THE VICINITY OF JETTIES...INLETS...AND PIERS.

* WAVE HEIGHT AND PERIOD FORECASTS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF DEEP OCEAN
  WAVES OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS...NOT SURF CONDITIONS.
