OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)
 
 
DRY WEATHER IS EXPECTED ON SATURDAY, AS AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE BUILDS  
OVER THE AREA. THE RIDGE WILL WEAKEN ON SUNDAY, WITH AN INVERTED  
UPPER LEVEL TROUGH ON MONDAY. AS A RESULT, RAIN CHANCES WILL RETURN  
TO THE AREA SUNDAY AND MONDAY, WITH THE BETTER CHANCE FOR  
PRECIPITATION ON MONDAY. BREEZY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED ON SATURDAY  
AND SATURDAY NIGHT, AS LOW PRESSURE DEEPENS OVER WEST TEXAS. HUMID  
CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED DUE TO THE MOISTURE FROM PREVIOUS  
RAINS.  
 
* 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.
