.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
A STRONG NORTHEAST FLOW WILL BECOME MORE EASTERLY TONIGHT AS A
COASTAL TROUGH STRENGTHENS ALONG THE MIDDLE TEXAS COAST. THE
TROUGH WILL GRADUALLY SHIFT NORTHEAST ACROSS THE WATERS ON SATURDAY
WITH WIND SPEEDS SLOWLY DIMINISHING THROUGH THE DAY. CHANCES OF
RAIN WILL EXIST IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE COASTAL TROUGH. THE
CHANCE FOR RAIN WILL DECREASE SUNDAY AS THE TROUGH MOVES NORTH.
ONSHORE FLOW WILL INCREASE MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY AS A
STRONG UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE DEVELOPS TO THE NORTHWEST. A COLD
FRONT WILL MOVE ACROSS THE WATERS BY WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND RESULT IN
STRONG OFFSHORE FLOW. THE COMBINATION OF THE FRONT AND AN UPPER
LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL RESULT IN A CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS WEDNESDAY.
