nautical miles including Galveston and Matagorda Bays

SYNOPSIS FOR HIGH ISLAND TO MATAGORDA SHIP CHANNEL OUT 60 NM

Dense fog has moved into portions of the nearshore waters and Bays
this evening, with reduced visibilities expected to persist into the
morning hours. A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for these locations
as a result. A weak cold front will approach the coast on Thursday and
stall over land before moving back to the north. Latest model guidance
continues to indicate that the front will drift- at best - only close
enough to the coast to offer a very brief reprieve from the fog on
the upper portion of the bays. Expect little to no help elsewhere on
the waters. Fog and rain chances linger into early next week.
