.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...DRY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED SUNDAY. RAIN
CHANCES WILL INCREASE AFTER SUNDAY 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 SUNDAY THROUGH
TUESDAY. 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.
