SYNOPSIS FOR HIGH ISLAND TO MATAGORDA SHIP CHANNEL OUT 60 NM

Moderate onshore winds will gradually diminish the next couple days
as surface high pressure builds in from the east and the pressure
gradient relaxes. A surface trough will shift northward across the
western Gulf waters early this weekend and the chance for showers
and thunderstorms returns. As the trough passes, southeast winds
will resume as we head into early next week.
