.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...A WEAK TO MODERATE SOUTHEAST WIND CAN BE EXPECTED
THURSDAY. THIS WILL PROVIDE ADEQUATE MOISTURE FOR ISOLATED SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS ON THURSDAY...ALONG WITH HIGHS IN THE UPPER 80S.
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL POSSIBLE THURSDAY NIGHT
INTO FRIDAY MORNING AS A COLD FRONT MOVES THROUGH SOUTH TEXAS. THE
COLD FRONT IS EXPECTED TO MOVE ACROSS THE COASTLINE EARLY FRIDAY
MORNING...WITH COOLER AND DRIER AIR FILTERING INTO THE AREA FRIDAY
AFTERNOON AND EVENING. A MODERATE OFFSHORE FLOW WILL DEVELOP IN
THE WAKE OF THE COLD FRONT BY FRIDAY AFTERNOON.

* 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.
