Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

228 AM CDT Fri May 22 2020

 

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

As surface high pressure remains in place over the southeastern U.S.

onshore winds are expected to continue through the weekend. The

persistent southerly winds will also increase seas and enhance

the risk for rip currents over the next several days. The approach

of an upper level disturbance heading into the weekend will

increase precipitation chances, with periods of showers and

thunderstorms expected to persist at least into the first half of

next week, potentially longer.
