Detailed Forecast


Synopsis: East to southeast flow will develop today ahead of an approaching cold front. Winds around 15 to 20 knots, gusting to 25 knots at times are expected at Galveston Bay and nearshore waters from High Island to Freeport out 20 nm through mid afternoon. The aforementioned cold front will move through the Gulf waters late Friday into Saturday morning, bringing a northerly wind shift and a line of showers. Moderate to strong north to northeast winds and building seas behind this front will likely require small craft advisories on Saturday with caution flags lingering through Sunday. There will be a chance of showers and thunderstorms on Saturday, but next week is looking relatively dry with the next chance of precipitation not arriving until near the end of week.
