Port Aransas Jetty Tides:

.Outlook (Days 3-5)...A weak to moderate northerly flow behind
the front Monday will become onshore Monday night, as the surface
high moves east. Areas of fog and drizzle, along with a chance
for light rain, are expected Monday night. Fog and rain chances
will end by Tuesday afternoon, as the warm front moves north of
the coast. Warmer temperatures are expected Tuesday and Wednesday,
with breezy to windy conditions expected on Wednesday. A cold
front will approach the waters Wednesday night, bringing a chance
for showers and thunderstorms with the boundary. Cooler and drier
conditions are expected on Thursday behind the front.

* 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 of northeasterly
  winds exist.

* Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, remain calm.
  Don`t fight the current. Swim in a direction following the
  shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or
  wave for help. If tired, float or tread water until out of
  the rip current.

* Wave height and period forecasts are representative of deep ocean
  waves over the offshore waters, not surf conditions.
