.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
Northwest to north winds will increase tonight over the Middle
Texas Coastal Waters. Hazardous seas will also develop, primarily
over the offshore Gulf Waters. The strong winds and seas will
begin to subside Friday morning. Weak to moderate onshore flow
expected Saturday, then increasing to predominately moderate
onshore Saturday night and Sunday, as surface high pressure moves
eastward across the northwestern Gulf of Mexico and as surface low
pressure deepens over the Southern Plains. Moderate onshore flow
will continue over the Waters Monday and Tuesday, along with
increasing moisture, as an upper level disturbance approaches
Texas from the west. The combination of this upper system and
greater moisture will contribute to isolated to scattered showers
and thunderstorms Monday night through Tuesday night.
