.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...A MODERATE SOUTH TO SOUTHEAST WIND IS
EXPECTED FOR THE WEEKEND. THERE WILL BE A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR
SHOWERS ON SUNDAY AND MONDAY. A LIGHT TO MODERATE EAST WIND IS
EXPECTED ON MONDAY AS A FRONT MOVES INTO NORTH TEXAS. HIGH
TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN IN THE LOWER TO MID 70S.

* 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 OR NORTHEASTERLY
  WINDS EXIST.

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