Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

342 AM CST Fri Feb 28 2020

 

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

High pressure lingering over the region will help keep light

winds and seas in place the next couple of days. A tightening

pressure gradient in response to the next storm system developing

over the Southern Plains will increase winds and seas by Saturday

night. Caution flags or advisories may be needed at that time. We

are continuing to monitor the potential for possible sea fog

development early next week along with the potential for elevated

swells given the forecast of a lengthening SE fetch.
