EXPECT A LIGHT TO MODERATE SOUTHEAST FLOW TODAY. CHANCES OF
SHOWERS AND PERHAPS A THUNDERSTORM WILL EXIST TODAY THROUGH SUNDAY
AS AN UPPER LEVEL WEATHER DISTURBANCE MOVES ACROSS THE REGION.
FLOW WILL BECOME A STRONG TO VERY STRONG BY MIDNIGHT SUNDAY NIGHT
AS A POWERFUL COLD FRONT BLASTS SOUTH ACROSS THE COASTAL WATERS.
GUSTS IN EXCESS OF GALE FORCE ARE POSSIBLE OVER THE GULF WATERS
BEHIND THE STRONG FRONT. MARINERS URGED TO FOLLOW FUTURE MARINE
FORECASTS FOR SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY REGARDING THIS COLD FRONT.
THE ISSUANCE OF A GALE WATCH MAY BE REQUIRED ON SATURDAY. WINDS
WILL DIMINISH ON MONDAY AFTERNOON AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO
TEXAS. A COASTAL TROUGH WILL DEVELOP LATE TUESDAY AS ANOTHER BUT
SLOW-MOVING UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE APPROACHES SOUTH TEXAS. THE
SURFACE AND UPPER TROUGH WILL PRODUCE AREAS OF RAIN BY TUESDAY
NIGHT...WITH RAIN CHANCES TAPERING OFF ON WEDNESDAY AS THE
DISTURBANCE BEGINS TO MOVE EAST OF THE WATERS LATE WEDNESDAY.
