Approaching system may complicate oil spill clean-up efforts

Posted: Monday, March 24, 2014 9:34 am | Updated: 1:29 pm, Mon Mar 24, 2014.

An upper-level system expected to track east from Southern California to Texas, combined with a surface trough that may develop along the coast and/or a dry line advancing eastward across the region may complicate efforts to clean up an oil spill in Galveston Bay.

Brisk east to southeast winds will develop ahead of the system by Tuesday night and Wednesday, resulting in tides running as much as 1.5 feet above normal, along with rough seas along the coast of 5 to 7 feet near Galveston and to 8 to 11 feet southeast of Freeport by Wednesday. As if this weren’t enough, showers and thunderstorms will be possible from Tuesday night into early Thursday.
