RIP CURRENT RISK:      LOW RISK. MARINE CONDITIONS DO NOT SUPPORT THE
                       DEVELOPMENT OF RIP CURRENTS. HOWEVER, RIP CURRENTS ARE
                       STILL POSSIBLE, ESPECIALLY IN THE VICINITY OF THE SOUTH
                       PADRE ISLAND JETTY. KNOW HOW TO SWIM AND HEED THE ADVICE
                       OF THE BEACH PATROL.

ULTRAVIOLET INDEX:     EXTREME. WEAR A WIDE-BRIMMED HAT AND SUNGLASSES,
                       AND USE SUNSCREEN OF SPF 15 OR HIGHER. REMAIN IN
                       THE SHADE IF POSSIBLE.

WEATHER:               MOSTLY SUNNY.

TEMPERATURES:          HIGHS AROUND 90.

WIND:                  SOUTHEAST 15 TO 20 MPH.

WAVE HEIGHTS:          2 TO 4 FEET.

SURF TEMPERATURE:      75 DEGREES.

BAY TEMPERATURE:       83 DEGREES.

TIDES:                 A HIGH AT 4 56 AM.  A MINOR LOW AT 9 33 AM.
                       A MINOR HIGH AT 12 23 PM.  A LOW AT 8 57 PM.

OUTLOOK:               LOW WAVE HEIGHTS WILL LEAD TO A LOW RISK OF RIP CURRENTS
                       AT AREA BEACHES TODAY. HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN IN PLACE
                       RESULTING IN LIGHT TO MODERATE WINDS, SO AN ELEVATED RISK OF
                       RIP CURRENTS IS NOT CURRENTLY EXPECTED INTO NEXT WEEK.
