.DISCUSSION...
A few showers and thunderstorms are continuing to drift near the
Matagorda County coast and out over the Gulf this afternoon. We
could still see isolated showers and thunderstorms a little further
inland later this afternoon or evening. Isolated showers and
thunderstorms are forecast both Friday and Saturday, after which
time a ridge builds in overhead and suppresses any further
activity.

Dry conditions associated with the ridge will allow high
temperatures to rise into the low to mid 90s each afternoon
through next Thursday. Heat index values are forecast to range
from the low to mid 100s through Sunday, increasing to the 100-110
degree range Monday through Thursday. 11

.MARINE...
Low pressure taking shape in West Texas may allow light onshore flow
to develop briefly tonight, but with the pressure gradient still
light, nearshore waters should become variable or offshore towards
morning as the landbreeze sets up. Onshore flow should again
establish itself through the day Friday, gradually strengthening
through the weekend while veering a little to become more southerly.
The waters will remain relatively calm into the early weekend, but
increase through the weekend with the stronger wind field. By early
next week, nearshore waters look to reach into the 3-5 foot range,
while Gulf waters farther offshore may push a bit higher. Galveston
Bay should become slightly choppy early next week, while Matagorda
Bay may become choppy. The West Texas low does not look to make any
progress towards our area, and as upper ridging asserts itself,
precipitation chances will trend downwards for the next several
days. 25
