.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
Weak to moderate southerly flow can be expected this afternoon
with a moderate to briefly strong flow across the bays south of
Port Aransas to Baffin Bay. These conditions are expected again on
Saturday. Onshore flow will weaken by Sunday as a weak frontal
boundary moves into East Texas. This boundary will approach the
waters on Monday but should stay north as it weakens. As a result,
a generally weak easterly flow is expected Monday and Tuesday.
Showers and thunderstorms will be possible with the boundary
Sunday and Monday, with drier air moving into the region on
Tuesday.
