SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS
 
 
WEAK TO MODERATE ONSHORE FLOW IS EXPECTED TONIGHT THROUGH  
THURSDAY DUE TO LOWER MEAN SEA LEVEL PRESSURES TO THE WEST AND  
NORTHWEST. A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL APPROACH THE WATERS FROM  
THE NORTH AND INCREASE THE LIKELIHOOD FOR SHOWERS AND  
THUNDERSTORMS THURSDAY NIGHT. THE WEAK COLD FRONT WILL PUSH INTO  
THE WATERS AND STALL FRIDAY AND INTO THIS WEEKEND. ABUNDANT  
MOISTURE ASSOCIATED WITH THE FRONT WILL HELP TO PRODUCE SCATTERED  
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FROM LATE FRIDAY INTO THE WEEKEND. WINDS  
AND SEAS WILL WEAKEN BY THIS WEEKEND DUE TO THE PROXIMITY OF THE  
STALLED FRONT.
