SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS

Expect light and variable winds overnight. A weak to moderate
onshore flow will develop through late Saturday afternoon and
evening. Isolated showers and thunderstorms will be possible
across the offshore waters late tonight then expected to spread
toward the coast Saturday and Saturday night. An upper level
disturbance will contribute to isolated showers and thunderstorms
Sunday through Monday night. Light and variable winds Sunday will
shift onshore and strengthen to weak to moderate Sunday night
through Monday. A strong trough progressing across the Central
United States will tighten the pressure gradient Monday night,
causing Small Craft Exercise Caution conditions, before weakening
through Tuesday. An approaching frontal boundary and increasing
moisture will contribute to scattered showers and thunderstorms
Tuesday through Wednesday, with best chances late Tuesday night
into Wednesday morning. Moderate offshore flow is expected
following the frontal passage on Wednesday.
