SHIFT NORTHWEST BY THURSDAY. ISOLATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
WILL AFFECT THE SURF ZONE TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY...WITH THE BEST
CHANCES SOUTH OF PORT ARANSAS. THERE IS A POSSIBLITY FOR DANGEROUS
RIP CURRENTS AND MINOR COASTAL FLOODING DUE TO THE COMBINED
INFLUENCE OF LONG PERIOD SWELLS COMING ASHORE...PERSISTENT
MODERATE EAST TO NORTHEAST WINDS...AND THE NEW MOON ON THURSDAY.


* 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.
