...SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY IN EFFECT THROUGH MONDAY EVENING...

Synopsis: A weak tropical wave will continue to move across the western Gulf of Mexico and into Texas on Monday. This system will interact with a surface high building in from the western Atlantic and tighten the pressure gradient over the northwest Gulf. The result will be strong onshore flow and rough seas with small craft conditions through Monday. Tides will also run about a foot above astronomical levels into early Monday. The tropical wave will also bring an increase in moisture with numerous showers and storms through early in the week.
