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

High pressure moving east has allowed winds to return onshore.

Deepening Plains pressure will strengthen southerlies through mid

week and increase responding sea heights. A cold frontal passage

will pass off the coast Thursday morning. Along with showers and

thunderstorms, this frontal passage will significantly pick up

late week offshore winds and seas.
