Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

348 AM CST Sat Feb 29 2020

 

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

High pressure moving off to the east and low pressure deepening

over the Southern Plains will allow for the return of slowly

strengthening onshore winds today and tonight. Caution flags or

advisories may be needed this evening for the coastal waters. We

are continuing to monitor for possible sea fog development for as

early as Sunday night or most likely Monday night. There will also

be a  potential for elevated swells given the forecast of a

lengthening SE fetch. A cold front will cross SE Texas on late

Tuesday or early Wednesday. While the timing of this feature is

still uncertain, showers and thunderstorms should develop just

ahead and along the front itself.
