SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS

Light and variable winds this morning will turn out of the
southeast by this afternoon. Onshore flow will then become weak
to moderate tonight and Saturday as an area of low pressure
develops across the southern high plains. Moisture will increase
across  the region over the weekend. A cold front will move into
the coastal waters Sunday night, bringing a moderate to strong
north to northeast wind by Monday morning. The combination of a
coastal trough and the boundary will result in a chance for
showers and thunderstorms Sunday through Monday. The coastal
trough remains across the western Gulf through mid week and will
bring additional chances of rain to the Middle Texas Coastal
Waters.
