nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

917 AM CST Mon Feb 12 2018

 

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

Strong offshore winds will gradually diminish as high pressure

settles over the mid Mississippi valley. The high will move east

tonight and Tuesday and this will allow winds to veer to the east

on Tuesday and southeast on Wednesday. Sea fog may return as soon

as Tuesday night, becoming more likely Wednesday warm moist air flows

over cooler shelf waters.
