DISCUSSION...
DIFFICULT NIGHT...WAVE ALONG THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY NEAR THE COAST
TRANSLATED EAST ALONG THE BOUNDARY AND APPEARS TO HAVE HELPED TO
PULL THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY SOUTHWARD. THIS HAS BROUGHT WINDS AROUND
TO THE NORTH FIRST NEAR MATAGORDA BAY AND NOW NEAR GALVESTON.
FOG WAS WIDESPREAD ACROSS THE REGION WITH VISBY OF 1 TO 4 MILES.
ALONG THE IMMEDIATE COAST THE FOG IS A NOTICEABLY THICKER WITH 1
TO 1/4 MILE. THE VISIBILITY MAY IMPROVE WITH THE DRIER COOLER AIR
FLOWING INTO THE COASTAL COUNTIES BUT THAT MAY BE OFFSET BY THE
COOLING AND SST IN THE BAYS. SHOWERS GOT GOING IN EARNEST AROUND
GALVESTON AND ACROSS BOLIVAR AND INTO CHAMBERS COUNTY EARLIER THIS
EVENING WITH THE PASSAGE OF THE WAVE...BUT THESE ARE TAPERING DOWN
AND PROBABLY WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO OVERNIGHT.
