.Synopsis For High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel Out 60 NM including
Galveston and Matagorda Bays.

Light to moderate onshore flow will persist through the rest of
the week on into the weekend. Warm, moist air over the colder
water will provide an environment conducive for periods of sea fog
these next several days, mainly in the nighttime and morning
hours closer to the coast and in the bays. It probably will not be
until early next week when the overall threat subsides. That is
when we will see increased southerly winds in advance of cold
frontal passage Tuesday night or Wednesday.
