Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

342 AM CST Sat Feb 10 2018

 

.SYNOPSIS FOR HIGH ISLAND TO MATAGORDA SHIP CHANNEL OUT 60 NM...

Sea fog overnight is slowly shifting eastward up the coast

overnight. Look for some improvement when heavier rain and

thunderstorms are falling, but with a return to poorer conditions

when rain is less heavy. Potential for sea fog may return tonight

until a colder, drier post-frontal air spreads over the waters Sunday

morning. Elevated offshore winds and waves will be possible

behind the cold front Sunday afternoon into Monday.
