OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)
 
DRY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED SUNDAY. RAIN  
CHANCES WILL INCREASE AFTER SUNDAY AS AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH  
APPROACHES THE COAST OF SOUTH TEXAS WITH AN INCREASE OF MOISTURE.  
AS A RESULT...SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE. WEAK TO  
OCCASIONALLY MODERATE ONSHORE WINDS WILL CONTINUE SUNDAY THROUGH  
TUESDAY. EXPECT NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES FOR THE END OF AUGUST AND  
THE FIRST PART OF SEPTEMBER.  
 
* 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 OR NORTHEASTERLY  
WINDS EXIST.  
 
* WAVE HEIGHT AND PERIOD FORECASTS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF DEEP OCEAN  
WAVES OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS...NOT SURF CONDITIONS.
