Offshore and Coastal Forecast:

Synopsis: Tightened pressure gradient following yesterday's frontal passage is resulting in continued moderate offshore flow. Offshore flow will begin to weaken in intensity some through the day as surface high pressure in Texas slowly moves east and the gradient begins to slacken. High pressure continues to slide east with winds becoming light on Tuesday, and gradually shifting to onshore. A weak surface boundary shifts winds back to light and offshore Wednesday, but winds gradually become onshore again by Thursday as a surface low develops and moves towards Louisiana. Precip chances increase by Friday morning ahead of a cold front advancing towards the region. Dry weather and offshore flow develops behind the front by late Friday and is maintained into the start of the weekend.
