Synopsis for High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60

nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

1027 AM CDT Sun Mar 8 2020

 

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

With surface high pressure continuing to move off to the east, a

persistent onshore flow will be in store for the SE Texas coast

through the rest of today and through at least midweek.

Conditions will become favorable for the development of sea fog by

Monday as both ample low level moisture and a long southerly

fetch are expected. The next cold front is not forecast to move

into the waters until next weekend, so fog development may be an

issue for a good portion of the week.
