Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

348 AM CST Fri Jan 31 2020

 

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

 

High pressure settles into SE Texas today behind a departing cold

front with a clearer weekend in store. Offshore flow is expected

to continue through Saturday with seas remaining around 2 feet.

Winds look to diminish by early Sunday as high pressure slides

eastward with an onshore flow pattern expected to develop

throughout the day. South to southwest winds will pick up ahead of

the approach of a storm system and subsequent cold frontal passage

on Tuesday with seas building to around 5 to 7 feet. Moderate to

strong offshore winds will once again develop following the exit

of the front.
