SYNOPSIS FOR HIGH ISLAND TO MATAGORDA SHIP CHANNEL OUT 60 NM

A coastal low pressure center near Matagorda Bay this morning will
track eastward/northeastward off the coast through tonight.
Winds will veer more southeasterly and strengthen with building
seas today. Expect increasing chances for showers and
thunderstorms with some of the storms possibly becoming strong.
This storm system will move off to the east tonight, switching
winds to northerly. This will be followed by the passage of a
cold front on Tuesday, reinforcing the northerly winds. After the
front, expect several days with moderate to occasionally strong
northeast winds. Another cold front is expected to move through
the area Thursday night. Behind this front, we will see increasing
north winds and building seas as the week comes to an end.
