SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS

A moderate to strong onshore flow will continue into early this
afternoon over the Gulf waters and linger over the bay waters
south of Port Aransas through late afternoon. A weak to moderate
onshore flow is expected tonight into Saturday. Higher moisture
moving into the region Saturday will lead to a chance of showers
and thunderstorms.

Rain chances will increase Sunday into early next week as
moisture increases and an upper level trough moves across the
area. A frontal boundary will move close to the waters on Monday,
resulting in a weak easterly flow. Rain chances will decrease a
bit by mid-week as high pressure builds in.
