...LOW WATER ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM CST SATURDAY...

Synopsis: A moderate to strong offshore flow will persist tonight as high pressure builds into West Texas. High pressure will move over the region on Saturday and a secondary and much weaker cold front slides through the area Sunday. High pressure over the eastern Gulf will become anchored as a slow moving upper level low pressure system near Baja meanders slowly eastward which should maintain a moderate to strong southerly flow through mid week.
