Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

301 AM CDT Sat May 23 2020

 

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

Onshore winds will continue through the holiday weekend. Though

wind speeds are not always expected to be at least 15 knots today,

the long, persistent fetch from southeast winds have seas elevated

to levels that would be more expected of winds above the SCEC

threshold, and so there are caution flags in effect today.

Unsettled weather can be expected Sunday and well into next week

with multiple periods of showers and storms through the week.

Expect winds to become more variable towards the middle of next

week.
