NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CORPUS CHRISTI TX

MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS FROM BAFFIN BAY TO MATAGORDA SHIP CHANNEL
OUT TO 60 NAUTICAL MILES.

GMZ200-310945-
341 PM CDT WED JUL 30 2014

SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS

WEAK TO MODERATE ONSHORE FLOW IS EXPECTED TONIGHT THROUGH
THURSDAY DUE TO LOWER MEAN SEA LEVEL PRESSURES TO THE WEST AND
NORTHWEST. A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL APPROACH THE WATERS FROM
THE NORTH AND INCREASE THE LIKELIHOOD FOR SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS THURSDAY NIGHT. THE WEAK COLD FRONT WILL PUSH INTO
THE WATERS AND STALL FRIDAY AND INTO THIS WEEKEND. ABUNDANT
MOISTURE ASSOCIATED WITH THE FRONT WILL HELP TO PRODUCE SCATTERED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FROM LATE FRIDAY INTO THE WEEKEND. WINDS
AND SEAS WILL WEAKEN BY THIS WEEKEND DUE TO THE PROXIMITY OF THE
STALLED FRONT.
