Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

400 AM CST Sat Feb 1 2020

 

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

 

A generally clear weekend is expected with surface high pressure

remaining in place over SE Texas. Look for winds to gradually

shift westward and eventually southwestward with high pressure

moving off to the east as onshore redevelops by late Sunday. A

tightening of the surface pressure gradient accompanying this

pattern shift will result in increased winds and seas heading into

the beginning of next week. This will likely require the issuance

of caution flags and advisories. Scattered showers with isolated

thunderstorms will develop over the coastal waters on late Monday

Tuesday as a surface low passes to our north. A cold front

associated with this feature moves through the area on Wednesday.

A moderate to strong offshore flow will develop in the wake of

this frontal passage.
