.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
A generally weak onshore flow is expected by this afternoon. The
combination of copious moisture and an upper level trough of low
pressure will contribute to scattered showers and thunderstorms
today through Thursday. Onshore flow will increase to moderate
levels Thursday as a surface low pressure system deepens over the
Southern Plains. Rain chances will decrease through Friday as
drier air slowly works back into the region. Moderate to
occasionally strong onshore flow will continue through the
weekend.
