Bays and Waterways from Port Aransas to Port O`Connor-

20 NM-
731 PM CST Fri Jan 19 2018

...PATCHY DENSE SEA FOG EXPECTED UNTIL MIDNIGHT OVER THE NORTHERN
BAYS AND NORTHERN NEARSHORE COASTAL WATERS...

The combination of moist onshore flow and cool sea surface
temperatures has resulted in the development of sea fog over
portions of the bays and nearshore coastal waters mainly north of
Port Aransas. Within this region, the onshore flow is weak and is
expected to become offshore during the next several hours, which
will limit the amount of sea fog development near the coast.
Nevertheless, expect patchy dense fog with visibilities around 1
nautical mile or less.

After midnight Saturday morning, persistent weak offshore flow
will preclude additional development of sea fog near the coast.

Mariners that encounter fog are urged to reduce speed, and maintain
a lookout for other vessels, buoys, and breakwaters. In addition,
keep your navigation lights on. Consider returning to or
remaining in port, especially if your vessel is not equipped to
handle the reduced visibility.
