Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

422 AM CDT Wed Oct 9 2019

 

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

Light onshore winds will gradually increase today and tonight as lee

side pressures fall. A cold front should push off the coast around

midday Friday with moderate to strong offshore winds in its wake.

Expect some showers and isolated thunderstorms along the front.

Small craft advisories will be required behind the front, and

cannot rule out some gusts to near gale force Saturday night

offshore. Winds and seas begin to diminish later in the day

Saturday as high pressure builds into the area. Look for the

boundary to return as a warm front late Sunday into Monday as the

high moves off to the east.
