.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
Areas of dense fog will continue to develop through the night,
but conditions may improve some towards sunrise. Moderate onshore
 flow is expected to develop overnight and continue on Saturday.
Winds could approach small craft advisory levels toward morning.
Another cold front will move into the coastal waters late
Saturday night into Sunday resulting in a weak to occasionally
moderate  offshore flow in the wake of the front. Scattered to
numerous  showers and isolated thunderstorms are expected with
the front.  Drier air will move in Sunday night, diminishing the
chances for  rain. A weak to moderate northeast flow is expected
Monday. A  return of onshore flow will occur Monday night as high
pressure  moves to the east. Onshore flow will increase to
moderate levels  Tuesday into Wednesday as low pressure develops
over the southern  high plains.
