Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

317 AM CST Wed Jan 22 2020

 

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

Look for rain to spread into the waters today and a chance of

thunderstorms tonight as the next weather system moves into the

area. Increasing onshore winds and building seas can be expected

through tonight. A cold front should push off the coast toward mid

morning Thursday with moderate northwest and north winds in its wake.

High pressure will quickly move off to the east and a moist onshore

flow should resume and increase by late Friday. A developing coastal

trough will provide another shot of showers and thunderstorms

Saturday night and Sunday.

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

Look for rain to spread into the waters today and a chance of

thunderstorms tonight as the next weather system moves into the

area. Increasing onshore winds and building seas can be expected

through tonight. A cold front should push off the coast toward mid

morning Thursday with moderate northwest and north winds in its wake.

High pressure will quickly move off to the east and a moist onshore

flow should resume and increase by late Friday. A developing coastal

trough will provide another shot of showers and thunderstorms

Saturday night and Sunday.
