Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

928 AM CST Fri Dec 6 2019

 

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

A cold front will be passing through the Gulf water through the

early afternoon. Drier air behind the front will help dissipate

the fog that developed this morning. Isolated showers could form

along this boundary as it moves through the Gulf. Winds will also

pick up behind the front, and are expected to be strong enough to

prompt caution flags for this afternoon and into the night.

Onshore winds are set to return Sunday. Another front may pass

through the region Monday night with a better chance of showers

with it and a moderate to strong offshore flow developing in its

wake.
