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

A weak cold front will move offshore this morning, with enhanced

winds in its wake diminishing rather quickly today. A second,

slightly stronger cold front looks to enter the region late Thursday

and reach the coast by Friday morning. Winds and seas will increase

behind the front, possibly necessitating caution flags in the

offshore waters. Precipitation chances with this passage will be

fairly low. Winds should shift back onshore by late Saturday  before

another cold front approaches the area early next week.
