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

Moderate north winds and elevated seas will gradually diminish

through the day. Mariners should again anticipate low water

conditions in the northern parts of the bays as we head into the

next low tide cycle later this afternoon and evening. As

high pressure moves off to the east on Thursday, east to southeast

winds will resume. A coastal trough will develop off the middle

Texas coast on Friday and move eastward Friday night & Saturday.

Look for winds and seas to increase as this occurs. Winds will

become northerly as it departs and persist through the weekend.
