.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
A moderate onshore flow will continue over most of the coastal waters today with moderate to strong winds over the near shore waters and bays south of Port Aransas. The onshore flow will become weak to moderate tonight and Saturday morning ahead of a weak cold front. Isolated showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible as the front moves across the waters Saturday afternoon with a weak to moderate offshore flow expected along the coast.   Offshore flow will strengthen to more moderate levels Saturday night into Sunday, with brief periods of SCEC conditions possible over the offshore waters. A weak to moderate onshore flow returns Sunday night into Monday as the front retreats northward, which will increase the chances for isolated showers. A secondary front is then expected to push through the waters late Monday night into Tuesday, with a weak to moderate offshore flow developing in its
wake.
