.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
AN AREA OF SURFACE LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE TOWARD THE MIDDLE TEXAS
COASTAL WATERS TONIGHT INTO THURSDAY. THIS WILL RESULT IN A
MODERATE TO OCCASIONALLY STRONG NORTHEAST FLOW THIS EVENING. SCATTERED TO
NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED AS THE TROUGH
APPROACHES THE TEXAS COAST THIS EVENING THROUGH THURSDAY. THE WINDS AND
SEAS WILL BE HIGHER IN AND NEAR THUNDERSTORMS. SCATTERED SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED FRIDAY DUE TO COPIOUS MOISTURE AND
AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE. LINGERING MOISTURE WILL CONTRIBUTE TO
ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS SATURDAY. THE
CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION WILL DECREASE SIGNIFICANTLY SUNDAY AS AN
UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM BEGINS TO BUILD OVER THE REGION.
ONSHORE FLOW WILL INCREASE SUNDAY OVER THE COASTAL WATERS AS AN
UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE ENTERS THE PLAINS.
