.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...A WEAK COLD FRONT WILL MOVE INTO SOUTH
TEXAS AND THE ADJACENT WATERS BY THE WEEKEND AND STALL. ABUNDANT
MOISTURE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS FRONT WILL PRODUCE ISOLATED TO
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORM OVER THE WEEKEND...MOST
NUMEROUS ON SATURDAY. BY MONDAY...THE FRONT WILL HAVE DISSIPATED
AND SO ONLY ISOLATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED. WINDS
AND SEAS OUTSIDE OF THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE WEAK DUE TO THE
PROXIMITY OF THE FRONT. HIGHS WILL BE IN THE MID 80S TO AROUND 90
WHILE OVERNIGHT LOWS WILL BE IN THE UPPER 70S TO LOWER 80S.

* 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.
