.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...RAIN CHANCES CONTINUE INTO THE WEEKEND...WITH
THE BEST CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION ON SUNDAY AS A FRONTAL BOUNDARY
MOVES INTO SOUTH TEXAS AND STALLS. A WEAK EASTERLY FLOW WILL
DEVELOP ON SUNDAY WITH THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY. THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY
WILL WEAKEN AND DISSIPATE ON MONDAY AND...WITH DRIER AIR MOVING
INTO THE AREA FROM THE NORTH... RAIN CHANCES WILL GRADUALLY
DIMINISH EARLY NEXT WEEK. EXPECT HIGHS IN THE 80S AND LOWS IN THE
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.
