...STRONG ONSHORE WINDS AND HIGH SEAS INTO MONDAY... .Surface
high pressure over the southeast US will interact with a tropical
wave moving toward the Texas coast, which will cause the pressure
gradient to remain tight over the northwestern Gulf of Mexico.
The result will be continued elevated winds and higher seas. Wind
and wave conditions will begin to improve tonight as the tropical
wave moves into Texas.
