SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS

Tropical moisture will continue today, as a coastal trough gradually
moves farther inland through Wednesday. As a result, periods of
showers and thunderstorms can be expected today through Wednesday.
With the trough moving inland, winds and wave heights will begin
to decrease later this afternoon to below Small Craft Advisory
conditions. Scattered showers will develop again on Thursday, with
a light to moderate southeast wind. Showers and thunderstorms
will taper off on Thursday evening, with only isolated to
scattered showers and thunderstorms possible through the rest of
the week.
