.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
Northerly flow and seas will continue to gradually diminish
today, as high pressure settles into East Texas. However,
hazardous winds and seas will continue until noon for much of the
gulf waters. Offshore flow will continue to weaken tonight through
Thursday, with light and variable winds developing in Thursday
afternoon. Onshore flow will resume on Friday, as a surface high
pressure continues move east and across the waters. Onshore flow
will increase to near moderate levels over the weekend, with an
increase in moisture. A frontal boundary will approach the waters
on Sunday night with winds shifting to the east overnight. The
combination of a coastal trough and the boundary, along with
increased instability and moisture, will result in the chance for
showers Sunday into Sunday night.
