VFR conditions are expected. The high pressure ridge overhead of
southeast Texas will keep light winds overhead. This should allow for a
land breeze to develop and generate offshore winds at kgls around
sunrise Friday. Onshore winds will then develop during the
afternoon across the area as the high pressure ridge drifts to the
east and as a sea and Bay breeze develop and move inland.

Discussion...
surface high pressure continues to ridge into Texas from the east.
Air mass is not quite as dry as light night and temperatures are 4 to 6
degrees warmer. Periods of cirrus will also stream across the sky
overnight. Raised min temperatures a few degrees due to the slightly
higher moisture content otherwise the rest of the forecast is on
track. 43
