...COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 AM CDT
THURSDAY...
...HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1 AM CDT
THURSDAY...

* WHAT...For the Coastal Flood Advisory, minor coastal flooding
  expected. For the High Rip Current Risk, dangerous rip
  currents.

* WHERE...Aransas Islands, Kleberg Islands, Nueces Islands and
  Calhoun Islands Counties.

* WHEN...For the Coastal Flood Advisory, until 7 AM CDT
  Thursday. For the High Rip Current Risk, through late tonight.

* IMPACTS...Poor driving conditions are expected as water
  reaches the dunes, mainly near times of high tide. Some beach
  access roads will be impassable. High water levels will also
  approach low areas along the intracoastal waterways and bays.
  Rip currents can sweep even the most experienced swimmers away
  from shore into deeper water. These rip currents can become
  life-threatening to anyone entering the surf.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

If travel is required, allow extra time as some roads may be
closed. Do not drive around barricades or through water of
unknown depth. Take the necessary actions to protect flood-prone
property.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float. Don`t swim against the current. If able, swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
shore and call or wave for help.
