Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

228 AM CDT Fri Nov 1 2019

 

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

Winds and seas continue to taper off early this morning, and while

some isolated spots may be near the threshold for caution flags

around dawn, it will not be for long, as more quiet conditions

with northeast winds prevail this morning. A very weak front is

expected to move across the waters Friday night, resulting in

winds backing to be more northerly through Saturday night. Winds

on Friday night may briefly be strong enough again to require

caution flags. Onshore flow resumes again Sunday into early next

week.
