Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory, Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 2:21 PM CDT Jun. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory now in effect until 4 PM CDT Friday...
... High rip current risk remains in effect until 7 PM CDT this
evening...

* coastal flooding... primarily across Gulf facing beaches and a
few locations along the bays and waterways.

* Timing... tidal overflow will continue tonight... with coastal
flooding expected to be the worst around high tide Friday
morning. Water levels will slowly improve Friday after high
tide... but water levels will remain elevated at least into the
afternoon hours. On Friday... high tide at Port Aransas is at 524
am CDT... with high tide at Port O'Connor at 1032 am CDT. The
high rip current threat is expected to continue to diminish by
this evening due to a more south wind which will also be
increasing this evening.


* Impacts... at 2 to 2.5 feet above mean sea level... wave run up
well into the dunes will occur resulting in limited to
impossible beach driving conditions. Some beach and access
roads are already closed... and more will likely be closed. For
the bays and waterways... at around 2 feet above mean sea
level... North Beach in Corpus Christi Bay begins to flood
with water well into some picnic areas on the beach. Water
crosses over portions of Laguna shores drive in Flour Bluff.
In addition... strong and potentially life threatening rip
currents will occur along Gulf facing beaches of the middle
Texas coast.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

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.






Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:54 PM CDT Jun. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory remains in effect until 7 PM CDT this evening...

* temperature... heat index values between 110 and 114 degrees
this afternoon.

* Impacts... prolonged outdoor activity without proper rest...
hydration... or other precautionary actions may result in heat
exhaustion or even heat stroke.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that heat indices of 110 degrees or higher
are expected over most of the area for at least two hours.
Prolonged exposure combined with physical activity could cause
heat exhaustion and even heat stroke. The elderly, the very
Young, the sick, and people with heart conditions are most at
risk in extreme heat.

Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing, as it reflects heat and
sunlight and helps your body stay cooler. Drink plenty of
liquids, preferably water, even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid
alcoholic beverages.

Try to get out of the heat for a few hours each day and into an
air conditioned place or swimming pool.

Reduce, eliminate, or reschedule strenuous activities to the
coolest times of the day. If you must be outside, reduce your
activities. Drink plenty of water, take frequent breaks and wear
light-colored clothing.
