NOAA Weather

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

Southerly winds should decrease later this morning and allow for

seas to slowly decrease. Winds increase again Saturday in response

to a storm system moving across Texas. This may allow for another

brief period of exercise caution conditions. After a second storm

system on Sunday, a cold front is expected to push off the coast

early Monday. Sea fog will be possible starting later today down

along the coastal bend of Texas and begin to develop up the Upper

Texas Coast towards Galveston by Friday morning. Patchy sea fog

may persist over the weekend.

between 1800-0800 managed by VTS Houston/Galveston. 

 

San Jacinto River is open to vessel traffic as managed by VTS Houston/Galveston.

 

Old River remains closed until further notice.

Visual assessments were completed of Jacintoport, Houston Fuel Oil docks and Vopak Deer Park to determine the impacts and future availability for vessels. Updates to dock status will be provided via the VTS Berth Status Chartlet distributed through the Port Coordination Team notes.

 

The U.S. Coast Guard Captain of the Port is working in close coordination with EPA, TCEQ, Harris County, ITC, and the contracted

toxicology companies to evaluate any resulting impacts to the Houston Ship Channel.

Southerly winds should decrease later this morning and allow for

seas to slowly decrease. Winds increase again Saturday in response

brief period of exercise caution conditions. After a second storm

system on Sunday, a cold front is expected to push off the coast

early Monday. Sea fog will be possible starting later today down

along the coastal bend of Texas and begin to develop up the Upper

Texas Coast towards Galveston by Friday morning. Patchy sea fog
