.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
Offshore flow will gradually transition to onshore as the day
progresses. The weak to moderate onshore flow will then
strengthen to moderate to strong levels by this evening and
continue into  Friday. A few showers and possible thunderstorms
may occur today mainly east of Port Aransas. Rain chances will
increase this weekend and into early next week as moisture
increases and an upper level trough moves across the area. A
frontal boundary will move close to the waters on Monday,
resulting in a weak easterly flow.
