Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory, Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 4:29 AM CDT Jun. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

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

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

* Timing... tidal overflow will continue through at least this
afternoon... with coastal flooding expected to be the worst
around high tide early this morning. Water levels will only
slowly improve today after high tide... as the highest swells and
periods diminish. High tide at Port Aransas is at 431 am... with
high tide at Port O'Connor at 949 am. The high rip current
threat is expected to continue through this afternoon as well.

* 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: 3:56 AM CDT Jun. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect from noon today to 7 PM CDT this
evening...

The National Weather Service in Corpus Christi has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect from noon today to 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.
