.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
Mainly moderate onshore flow is expected today through Monday,
however occasionally strong onshore flow will be possible over
the Bays and Nearshore Coastal Waters south of Port Aransas. An
upper level trough of low pressure will contribute to isolated
showers and thunderstorms today. Drier conditions Monday will
preclude significant precipitation. A chance of showers and
thunderstorms returns Tuesday and Wednesday, then rain chances
decrease through Thursday. A weak to moderate, onshore flow will
prevail Tuesday through Thursday.
