Port Aransas Jetty Tides:

.Outlook (Days 3-5)...

Temperatures will be warmer Monday and Tuesday, with highs in the
low to mid 70s and lows in the low to mid 60s.  Isolated showers
will be possible Monday.  Chances for showers and thunderstorms will
increase on Tuesday and Wednesday as a cold front approaches the
region.  Ahead of the front winds will increase to a moderate to
strong onshore flow. The front will move through during the day on
Wednesday, bringing a light to moderate northerly flow. Cooler
temperatures can be expected behind the front, with highs on
Wednesday in the mid 60s.

* A moderate risk of rip currents means wind and/or wave conditions
  support stronger and/or more frequent rip currents.  Research has
  shown rip currents are typically more frequent and stronger in the
  vicinity of jetties, inlets, and piers.

* 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. Temperatures will be warmer Monday and Tuesday, with
  highs in the low to mid 70s and lows in the low to mid 60s.
  Isolated showers will be possible Monday. Chances for showers
  and thunderstorms will increase on Tuesday and Wednesday as a
  cold front approaches the region. Ahead of the front winds will
  increase to a moderate to strong onshore flow. The front will
  move through during the day on Wednesday, bringing a light to
  moderate northerly flow. Cooler temperatures can be expected
  behind the front, with highs on Wednesday in the mid 60s.
* Wave height and period forecasts are representative of deep ocean
  waves over the offshore waters, not surf conditions.
