.outlook (days 3-5)...a frontal boundary will move into south
texas overnight saturday night, then push through on sunday,
bringing cooler temperatures and providing a focus for showers and
a few thunderstorms late saturday night and sunday. a weak to
moderate northerly flow is expected on sunday, as a coastal trough
remains over the rio grande valley. drier air will move into the
area sunday night, ending the chances for rain. high pressure
moves east on monday, bringing moisture back to the area and
resulting in a slight chance for light rain monday night and
tuesday morning. warmer temperatures are expected on tuesday with
a weak to moderate onshore flow.
* 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.
* 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 of northeasterly
* 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.
