SYNOPSIS
High pressure will continue to extend from the Mid-

waters through Sunday night, as a cold front moves off the Texas
coast. Fresh E winds in the northern Gulf waters will become SE
across the NW Gulf waters this morning, continue through
Saturday, then become light southerly flow just ahead of the
Sunday evening cold front for the Texas coast. The front is
expected to reach from FL Panhandle to SW corner of area late
