.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
A moderate to strong onshore flow will continue into early this
afternoon over the Gulf waters and linger over the bay waters
south of Port Aransas through late afternoon. A weak to moderate
onshore flow is expected tonight into Saturday. Higher moisture
moving into the region Saturday will lead to a chance of showers
and thunderstorms.   Rain chances will increase Sunday 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. Rain
chances will decrease a bit by mid-week as high pressure builds
in.
