DECREASING PREDICTED TIDE LEVELS ON SOUTH PADRE ISLAND WILL ALLOW
RUN UP TO GRADUALLY RECEDE INTO MONDAY. AFTER THE FRONT
PASSES...BEACHFRONT TIDES MAY RISE AGAIN BUT HIGHLY DEPENDENT ON
EVENTUAL SWELL DIRECTION. A NORTHERLY SWELL DIRECTION WOULD KEEP
RUN UP TO A MINIMUM BUT A NORTHEAST DIRECTION WOULD RESUME RUN UP

  SCHOOL AND WORK WEEK WILL MINIMIZE POTENTIAL IMPACT WITH MANY
  FEWER POOR TO AVERAGE SWIMMERS AT THE BEACH.
