Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory, High Surf Advisory, Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 5:59 AM CDT Jun. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory remains in effect until 10 am CDT this
morning...
... High surf advisory remains in effect until 10 am CDT this
morning...
... High rip current risk remains in effect through this evening...

* coastal flooding... primarily across Gulf facing beaches.

* Waves and surf... breakers reaching 5 feet or higher especially
near the jetties.

* Timing... coastal flooding will continue this morning as tides
are currently running about 2 feet above normal. Although high
tide has already occurred, residual tides will keep the water
levels elevated until conditions improve.

* Impacts... minor coastal flooding is likely with driving
conditions along the beach not recommended. Beach umbrellas
and any other structures set up along the beach may be
inundated by wave run up. Strong and potentially life
threatening rip currents and pounding surf will occur along
the Lower Texas coastal beaches making it dangerous for
swimmers and beachgoers even along the immediate shore line.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area... producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions.

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

There is a high risk of rip currents.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards... beach patrol
flags and signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

Special Statement
Issued: 5:18 AM CDT Jun. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat index values between 105 to 110 degrees across deep south
Texas today...

The strong ridge of high pressure will continue over deep south
Texas on Thursday with high temperatures ranging from the 90s near
the coast to near 108 degrees across the western ranchlands and
upper rgv. The hot temperatures, combined with some humid air,
will produce heat index, or feels like temperatures, between 105
and 110 for a few hours across the region this afternoon.

Residents planning outdoor activities should drink plenty of
water, wear light weight and light colored clothing, and take
frequent breaks from the heat. Young children and pets should
never be left unattended in vehicles, but this is especially true
during warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
