.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...AN UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM WILL IMPACT
SOUTH TEXAS SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY...BRINGING A GOOD
CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND POSSIBLE THUNDERSTORMS. AS THE UPPER SYSTEM
MOVES EAST...A STRONG COLD FRONT WILL MOVE ACROSS THE REGION LATE
SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND SUNDAY EVENING. A STRONG OFFSHORE FLOW AND
COOLER TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP IN THE WAKE OF THE
FRONT SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY. ANOTHER UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM
WILL IMPACT THE COASTAL AREAS ON MONDAY NIGHT AND
TUESDAY...BRINGING ANOTHER GOOD CHANCE FOR RAIN AND KEEPING
DAYTIME TEMPERATURES WELL BELOW NORMAL. THE UPPER SYSTEM WILL
BEGIN TO MOVE EAST TUESDAY NIGHT...WITH DIMINISHING RAIN CHANCES.


* A LOW RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS THAT SURF ZONE CONDITIONS ARE NOT
  EXPECTED TO SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS.
  HOWEVER...LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS OFTEN OCCUR 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.
