This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of Gulf of Mexico.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight
Winds will increase this afternoon over the coastal waters as an
area of low pressure moves up the Texas coastline. Winds of 20 to
25 knots can be expected with higher gusts. A small craft advisory
has been issued from 4 pm this afternoon through midnight tonight.

The area of low pressure, combined with an upper level trough will
result in widespread showers and a few thunderstorms developing
this evening and continuing into Sunday. Some of these storms will
have the potential to produce visibility restricting heavy rain.

There is the potential for the development of marine fog late this
evening into tonight as a result of relatively warm, moist air
being transported over the relatively cool shelf waters. Should
marine fog develop, it may persist in varying degrees of
thickness for several days.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday
Showers and thunderstorms will be ongoing early Sunday. A few
storms may become strong to severe with damaging winds and
waterspouts possible Sunday afternoon and again during the day
Monday.

A series of upper level troughs will move across the area Monday
through Friday bringing several days of widespread rainfall.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation may be requested Sunday afternoon or Monday.
