Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

505 AM CDT Wed Oct 16 2019

 

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

A cold over Southeast Texas early this morning will move off the

coast near sunrise and bring increasing northerly winds. Moderate

to strong offshore winds late this afternoon and evening will

build seas and small craft advisories will be in effect tonight.

Showers and thunderstorms will accompany the front and may linger

well offshore into this evening. An area of disturbed weather that

may take on tropical characteristics could move through the

southwestern and Central Gulf towards the New Orleans area Friday

into Saturday afternoon this would increase rain chances and winds

as it passes by to the southeast. Southerly flow Sunday will

probably tap into deeper moisture and could bring a round of

showers and thunderstorms late Sunday. Another cold front should

arrive on Monday.
