...SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 AM CDT EARLY THIS

Synopsis: A weak tropical wave will continue to move across the far western Gulf of Mexico and into Texas today...and until it does so, the interaction between it and high pressure building in from the western Atlantic will maintain elevated southerly winds over the northwest Gulf. The tropical wave will also bring an increase in moisture with numerous showers and storms through mid-week. Once the wave moves farther inland towards the end of the week, we will see a return of more summer-like conditions on the coastal waters.
