SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS

Weak onshore flow can be expected this evening ahead of a weak
cold front. As the weak cold front pushes into the region tonight,
rain chances will diminish and winds will become northerly by
early Thursday morning. Surface high pressure will build in behind
the boundary resulting in weak to moderate northerly flow and dry
conditions on Thursday. Southerly onshore flow returns Friday and
picks up through Saturday as low pressure deepens across the
Central Plains. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be
possible Friday night into early Sunday as a series of upper level
disturbances move across South Texas. Sea fog over the bays and
nearshore waters will develop Saturday and potentially continue
into early Monday. Scattered showers are again possible on Monday
afternoon with the passage of a cold front. Winds are expected to
increase out of the north late Monday into Tuesday behind the
front.
