.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
Onshore flow redevelops today at mainly weak to moderate levels,
though bays and nearshore waters south of Port Aransas will be moderate. 
By Saturday, more of the area will see a moderate flow through the afternoon and overnight hours. 
Weak to moderate southeast flow is expected to continue Sunday through mid-week next week. 
However, Monday afternoon through Monday night, there is a low to medium chance for winds to strengthen to Small Craft Advisory conditions (over 20 knots). 
Because of the elevated wind potential, seas could reach 5-7 feet.
