VFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED. THE HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE OVERHEAD OF
SE TEXAS WILL KEEP LIGHT WINDS OVERHEAD. THIS SHOULD ALLOW FOR A
LAND BREEZE TO DEVELOP AND GENERATE OFFSHORE WINDS AT KGLS AROUND
SUNRISE FRIDAY. ONSHORE WINDS WILL THEN DEVELOP DURING THE
AFTERNOON ACROSS THE AREA AS THE HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE DRIFTS TO THE
EAST AND AS A SEA AND BAY BREEZE DEVELOP AND MOVE INLAND.
