.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
Moderate to strong southeast flow will persist today and tonight
as the area remains between an area of high pressures over the
Gulf of Mexico and lower pressures across the Plains. A slight
chance for a shower will exist close to shore today. A cold front
will approach the area from the north on Wednesday with wind
speeds weakening at that time. Better chances of showers or even a
thunderstorm will exist on Wednesday. The cold front will stall
near the coast Wednesday night. This front will contribute to
scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms Wednesday night
through and Thursday. Lingering moisture and upper level
disturbances will contribute to isolated to scattered showers
Friday and Saturday.
