Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

409 AM CST Tue Feb 11 2020

 

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

A cold front has pushed off the Gulf coast and has allowed for

visibility to improve some this morning. There is still some

patchy sea fog but think we will be able to allow the dense fog

advisory to expire on time. Sea fog may be possible again tonight

as the cold front pushes back north ahead of a stronger storm

system. This system should push across Texas on Wednesday and push

another cold front off the coast Wednesday night into Thursday.

Winds behind the front may require cautions/advisories.
