Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

331 AM CST Mon Nov 25 2019

 

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

Onshore flow will be light to moderate through the day today with

increasing cloud coverage. Winds will increase to 15 to 20 knots

tonight and through the day on Tuesday with seas 3 to 5 feet with

occasional 6 ft seas in the Gulf waters. So, caution flags may be

necessary beginning tonight. The increase in the onshore flow is due

to an approaching cold front that will pass through the region late

Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Expect increasing chance of

showers and thunderstorms out ahead of the front and with the

frontal passage. Winds will again reach SCEC or even advisory level

criteria on Wednesday as a strong northeasterly flow sets up behind

the front. Light to moderate onshore flow returns on Thursday.
