RIP CURRENT RISK:      LOW RISK. SURF ZONE CONDITIONS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO
                       SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF LIFE-THREATENING RIP
                       CURRENTS. HOWEVER, LIFE-THREATENING RIP CURRENTS
                       OFTEN OCCUR IN THE VICINITY OF THE SOUTH PADRE
                       ISLAND JETTY. REMEMBER TO SWIM NEAR A LIFEGUARD.

LIGHTNING RISK:       NONE.

ULTRAVIOLET INDEX:     VERY HIGH. WEAR A WIDE-BRIMMED HAT AND SUNGLASSES, AND
                       USE SUNSCREEN OF SPF 15 OR HIGHER. REMAIN IN THE SHADE
                       IF POSSIBLE.

OUTLOOK:               A LOW RISK OF RIP CURRENTS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH
                       THIS AFTERNOON. THE INTERACTION BETWEEN HIGH PRESSURE
                       IN THE GULF AND LOW PRESSURE IN THE PLAINS WILL RESULT
                       IN BUILDING WAVE HEIGHTS OVERNIGHT TONIGHT INTO FRIDAY.
                       THE RIP CURRENT RISK IS EXPECTED TO BECOME ELEVATED AS
                       A RESULT STARTING TONIGHT AND POSSIBLY LASTING THROUGH
                       MONDAY.
