Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

443 AM CST Mon Feb 10 2020

 

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

Fog has developed in the Bays and in the near shore waters tonight

and will persist through the next couple of days, although it could

wane for a few hours during the day today in the Bays. Seas of 6 to

8 feet in the off shore waters has resulted in a Small Craft

Advisory being issued through the noon today. Seas in the near

shore waters will be 3 to 5 feet, so caution flags have been  issued

through the morning there. A cold front will approach the  coastline

late tonight into early tomorrow morning before stalling out and

retreating back inland during the day on Tuesday. If it  makes it to

the coast it could provide a brief reprieve from the  fog in the

Bays. As the front nears the coast it will also bring  isolated to

scattered showers. A stronger front will push off the  coast

Wednesday morning bringing an end to the fog threat but  will usher

in moderate to strong offshore flow on Thursday.

Fog has developed in the Bays and in the near shore waters tonight

and will persist through the next couple of days, although it could

wane for a few hours during the day today in the Bays. Seas of 6 to

8 feet in the off shore waters has resulted in a Small Craft

Advisory being issued through the noon today. Seas in the near

shore waters will be 3 to 5 feet, so caution flags have been  issued

through the morning there. A cold front will approach the  coastline

late tonight into early tomorrow morning before stalling out and

retreating back inland during the day on Tuesday. If it  makes it to

the coast it could provide a brief reprieve from the  fog in the

Bays. As the front nears the coast it will also bring  isolated to

scattered showers. A stronger front will push off the  coast

Wednesday morning bringing an end to the fog threat but  will usher

in moderate to strong offshore flow on Thursday.
