Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

420 AM CDT Thu Jul 23 2020

 

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

Tropical Depression Eight in the Gulf of Mexico is expected to

move west to northwestward spreading over the coastal waters on

Friday and approaching the coast on Saturday. During this time,

the system is expected to strengthen into a tropical storm.

Tropical Storm Watches are in effect for the bays and coastal

waters. Elevated seas and strong wind gusts are anticipated as

this system approaches the Texas coast, so mariners should

continue to monitor the forecast closely.

This product covers Southeast Texas

 

**HEAVY RAINS LIKELY OVER PORTIONS OF TEXAS BY THIS WEEKEND**

 

NEW INFORMATION

---------------

 

* CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS:

    - None

 

* CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS:

    - A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Brazoria Islands,

      Chambers, Coastal Brazoria, Coastal Galveston, Coastal Harris,

      Coastal Jackson, Coastal Matagorda, Galveston Island and

      Bolivar Peninsula, Inland Brazoria, Inland Galveston, Inland

      Jackson, Inland Matagorda, Matagorda Islands, Southern Liberty,

      and Wharton

 

* STORM INFORMATION:

    - About 370 miles southeast of Galveston TX or about 410 miles

      east-southeast of Matagorda TX

    - 26.0N 90.0W

    - Storm Intensity 30 mph

    - Movement West-northwest or 290 degrees at 9 mph

 

SITUATION OVERVIEW

------------------

 

Tropical Depression 8 continues to move west-northwestward in the Gulf

of Mexico. This movement towards the northwest Gulf and the Texas

coast is forecast to continue. As it does so, slow strengthening is

expected, and the depression should become a tropical storm in a day

or so, and remain at tropical storm strength until it makes landfall

on the Texas coast on Saturday.

 

Locally, we can expect seas and tides to increase, particularly on

Friday as the storm draws closer. There may be some minor coastal

flooding in particularly vulnerable locations along the coast - for

example, Highway 87 on the Bolivar Peninsula. Rain chances are

expected to increase on Friday, and stay high through at least the

weekend. Near the coast, 3 to 5 inches of rain are forecast, with

isolated spots to 8 inches. Rain totals are likely to be lower well

inland.

 

POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

 

* FLOODING RAIN:

Prepare for dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant

impacts across the Texas Gulf Coast. Potential impacts

include:

    - Moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations and

      rescues.

    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with swifter

      currents and overspill their banks in a few places, especially

      in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams, creeks, canals, and

      ditches overflow.

    - Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken foundations.

      Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid

      inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage

      areas. Some streets and parking lots take on moving water as

      storm drains and retention ponds overflow. Driving conditions

      become hazardous. Some road and bridge closures.

 

Prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible

limited impacts across inland Southeast Texas.

 

* WIND:

Prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across

the immediate Texas Gulf Coast. Potential impacts in this area include:

    - Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored

      mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.

    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or

      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are

      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.

    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban

      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on

      bridges and other elevated roadways.

    - Scattered power and communications outages.

 

Elsewhere across Southeast Texas, little to no impact is anticipated.

 

* SURGE:

Prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible limited impacts

across vulnerable locations on the Texas Gulf Coast. Potential

impacts in this area include:

    - Localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along

      immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas

      farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.

    - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread

      with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous in places where

      surge water covers the road.

    - Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes, mainly

     in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents.

    - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks,

      and piers. A few small craft broken away from moorings.

 

Elsewhere across Southeast Texas, little to no impact is anticipated.

 

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS

----------------------------------

 

* EVACUATIONS:

Listen to local official for recommended

preparedness actions.

 

 

* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:

Now is the time to check your emergency plan and emergency supplies

kit and take necessary actions to protect your family and secure your

home or business.

 

When making safety and preparedness decisions, do not focus on the

exact forecast track since hazards such as flooding rain, damaging

wind gusts, storm surge, and tornadoes extend well away from the

center of the storm.

 

Check on those who may not be fully aware of the situation or who are

unable to make personal preparations.

 

Closely monitor weather.gov, NOAA Weather Radio and local news

outlets for official storm information. Listen for possible changes

to the forecast.

 

* ADDITIONAL SOURCES OF INFORMATION:

- For information on appropriate preparations see ready.gov

- For information on creating an emergency plan see getagameplan.org

- For additional disaster preparedness information see redcross.org

 

NEXT UPDATE

-----------

 

The next local statement will be issued by the National Weather

Service in Houston/Galveston TX around 10 AM CDT, or sooner if

conditions warrant.
