                       possible in the surf zone. Remember to swim near
                       a lifeguard and with a non-inflatable flotation
                       device, such as a life jacket or boogie board.

Lightning Risk:       None.

Ultraviolet Index:     Extreme. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and
                       sunglasses, and use sunscreen of SPF 15 or
                       higher. Remain in shade if possible.

Outlook:               An elevated risk of rip currents is expected to
                       continue into next week due to increased swell
                       from Subtropical Storm Alberto as it moves
                       northward across the central and eastern Gulf of
                       Mexico. Dry conditions prevail this week under
                       partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies. High
                       temperatures range from the mid to upper 80s.
