RIP CURRENT RISK:      LOW RISK. MARINE CONDITIONS DO NOT SUPPORT THE
                       DEVELOPMENT OF RIP CURRENTS. HOWEVER, RIP CURRENTS ARE
                       POSSIBLE, ESPECIALLY IN THE VICINITY OF THE SOUTH PADRE
                       ISLAND JETTY. KNOW HOW TO SWIM AND HEED THE ADVICE OF
                       THE BEACH PATROL.

ULTRAVIOLET INDEX:     EXTREME. WEAR A WIDE-BRIMMED HAT AND SUNGLASSES, AND
                       USE SUNSCREEN OF SPF 15 OR HIGHER. REMAIN IN THE SHADE
                       IF POSSIBLE.

WEATHER:               SUNNY AND BREEZY.

TEMPERATURES:          HIGHS IN THE LOWER 90S.

WIND:                  SOUTH 10 TO 15 MPH. GUSTS 20 OR HIGHER.

WAVE HEIGHTS:          2 TO 4 FEET.

SURF TEMPERATURE:      76 DEGREES.

BAY TEMPERATURE:       82 DEGREES.

TIDES:                 A HIGH AT 6 21 AM. A LOW AT 9 46 PM.

OUTLOOK:               THE COMBINATION OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE GULF AND LOW
                       PRESSURE ACROSS WESTERN TEXAS WILL BRING STRONGER AND
                       GUSTY SOUTHEAST WINDS TODAY. A LOW RISK OF RIP CURRENTS
                       IS EXPECTED, BUT STAY CAUTIOUS THIS AFTERNOON, AS WAVE
                       HEIGHTS WILL INCREASE. AN ELEVATED RISK OF RIP CURRENTS
                       CAN BE EXPECTED FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE WEEKEND.
