.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
A strong offshore flow will develop late tonight into Friday
morning as high pressure builds into the area behind the departing cold
front. Widespread showers are expected tonight into Friday
morning as moisture increases ahead of a strong upper level
disturbance. Rain chances are expected to diminish Friday night as
drier air moves into the region behind the front. An upper
disturbance and coastal trough will bring an increased chance of
showers and thunderstorms Saturday, subsiding on Sunday. Mainly
light to moderate winds are expected this weekend and through the
first half of next week, however moderate to strong winds will be
possible in deeper waters for a time Saturday night.
