.SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE TEXAS COASTAL WATERS...
Weak to moderate onshore flow will continue as we wrap up the work week. 
Patchy fog is possible along the bays and the immediate coast Friday morning. 
With that said, we will have a small window this afternoon of moderate to occasionally strong flow, generally south of Port Aransas. 
A weak to moderate onshore flow will persist on Saturday. 
An upper-level disturbance, cold front, and copious moisture will contribute to scattered to numerous showers/thunderstorms Saturday night. 
The front will move across the waters Sunday. 
In response, precipitation will dissipate and moderate offshore flow will develop creating Small
Craft Exercise Caution conditions. 
Winds will transition to weak to moderate onshore areawide by late Monday and persist through the remainder of the period.
