.SYNOPSIS FOR HIGH ISLAND TO MATAGORDA SHIP CHANNEL OUT 60 NM...
Winds and seas will gradually continue to diminish throughout the
day today. Some scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible
across the waters through the next several days. A front
approaches this weekend but should not quite make it off the
coast. Onshore winds will ramp up around mid week as we become
sandwiched between surface high pressure over the SE CONUS and a
developing surface cyclone over the lee of the Rockies.
