A touch of spring was definitely in the air yesterday with sunshine and mild temperatures. Accompanying the generally pleasant conditions were increasingly brisk breezes this afternoon. The breezes are as much a sign of spring as the sunshine and milder temperatures.
Not surprisingly, a wind and small craft advisory has been issued for the Galveston County area from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday. In addition, a gale warning has been posted for area waters as a blustery cold front moves through southeast Texas, with frequent gale force gusts expected offshore.
