Port Aransas Jetty Tides:

.Outlook (Days 3-5)...Partly to mostly cloudy skies and above
normal temperatures can be expected through the weekend and into
next week. A moderate, to at times strong, onshore flow can be
expected through the weekend into the first part of next week. Rip
current risk should remain at least moderate through early next

* A moderate risk of rip currents means wind and/or wave conditions
  support stronger and/or more frequent rip currents.  Research has
  shown rip currents are typically more frequent and stronger in the
  vicinity of jetties, inlets, and piers.

* 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.
