Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

350 AM CDT Mon Apr 13 2020

 

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

A surface cold front has pushed offshore overnight, with winds

shifting northward in the wake of its passage. Post-frontal winds

look to hold around 20 knots through the remainder of the

morning, and a Small Craft Advisory remains in effect for the bays

and coastal waters through 10 AM as a result. Winds and seas

decrease heading into the afternoon as surface high pressure

builds into the area. A reinforcing front will move into the

waters Tuesday night causing winds and seas to build once again.

Caution flags and/or advisories are likely to be needed at that

time. As the surface high pushes eastward, onshore flow should

redevelop on Thursday.
