Occasional clusters and bands of showers and thunderstorms associated
with the outer bands of Tropical Storm Barry are moving through
portions of the Lower Texas Coastal waters, mainly 10 to 60
nautical miles east of Padre Island. Any of these thunderstorms or
rain bands will be capable of producing winds of 25 to 30 knots
with gusts as high as 40 knots. Torrential rainfall, lowering
visibilities to less than one mile and occasional lightning
strikes and an isolated waterspout can not be ruled out. Movement
of the rain bands and thunderstorms is generally south around 20
knots with a slight westward propagation. Outflow winds from the
cluster of thunderstorms may agitated the general wind flow and
increase the sea state through the remainder of the morning and
into the afternoon. As a result, it is suggested that smaller
vessels remain in port until the threat of thunderstorms pass.
Check the latest Lower Texas Coastal Waters forecast and the
latest Tropical Storm Barry forecast before venturing out of port
today.
