.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
A weak to occasionally moderate onshore flow is expected today in
advance of a cold front that will move across the area tonight.
The front is expected to trigger isolated to scattered showers and
thunderstorms. Moderate north to northeast wind will develop in
wake of the frontal passage early Thursday morning, and then
weaken through Thursday afternoon. Winds will briefly veer to the
east on Thursday night, but another surge of high pressure will
shift the winds back to the northeast again on Friday. Onshore
flow is expected to return Saturday and strengthen to a moderate
flow on Sunday.
