Port Aransas Jetty Tides:

.Outlook (Days 3-5)...Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be
possible Saturday into Saturday night. A cold front will move
through the region late Saturday night into early Sunday morning.
South to southeast winds on Saturday will switch to a moderate
northerly flow behind the front on Sunday and Monday

* 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.
