.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...
HOT AND HUMID CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED EACH DAY ALONG THE MIDDLE
TEXAS COAST. ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE
POSSIBLE FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. LIGHT AND VARIABLE WINDS IN THE
MORNINGS WILL BECOME WEAK TO MODERATE AND SOUTHEASTERLY BY MIDDAY
AND THROUGH THE AFTERNOONS. THE RIP CURRENT RISK IS EXPECTED TO
GENERALLY REMAIN LOW.

* 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.
