.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
Weak to moderate northeast flow will occur today due to increasing
surface pressure over South Texas and lower pressure over the
Southwest Gulf of Mexico. Onshore flow will become east Thursday
as surface high pressure moves east. Increasing moisture will
contribute to patchy to areas of light rain Thursday afternoon.
Isolated to scattered showers will be possible Friday and Saturday
ahead of an approaching cold front. Isolated thunderstorms will be
possible as well during the day on Saturday. Anticipate onshore
flow Friday and Saturday, transitioning to a north to northeast
flow by behind the front Saturday night.
