.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...RAIN CHANCES WILL INCREASE AFTER SUNDAY
NIGHT AS AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH APPROACHES THE COAST OF SOUTH TEXAS
WITH AN INCREASE OF MOISTURE. AS A RESULT...SCATTERED
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE. WEAK TO OCCASIONALLY MODERATE
ONSHORE WINDS WILL CONTINUE MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY. EXPECT NEAR
NORMAL TEMPERATURES FOR THE END OF AUGUST AND THE FIRST PART OF
SEPTEMBER.

* 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.
