Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

348 AM CST Sat Feb 8 2020

 

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

Expect light and variable winds through the morning hours as a

weak boundary moves off the coast bringing a slight chance of

light rain showers across Galveston Bay. This boundary will move

back inland this afternoon beginning onshore flow that will last

through Monday morning. The flow does become more moderate late

tonight into early tomorrow morning that may result in caution

flags being issued for the offshore waters. The moist easterly

flow will also bring the threat of sea fog developing in the Bays

and coastal waters beginning Sunday afternoon through at least

Monday. Monday night into Tuesday a disturbance will approach the

region before stalling. Depending how far eastward the associated

cold front gets before stalling will determine how long the fog

will last. But a stronger front will push through the midweek

that will bring an end to the fog should Monday night's system not

make it past the coast. A chance of showers and isolated

thunderstorms will last through late Thursday.
