HOUSTON (Reuters) - Ship traffic was halted along the Houston Ship Channel on Thursday night after a strong blast of cold weather raised gale force winds along the Texas Coast, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

Ship pilots called a halt to guiding vessels along the 53-mile (85-kilometer) Channel connecting the nation's busiest petrochemical port to the Gulf of Mexico at 8:15 p.m. CST Thursday (0215 GMT Friday), the Coast Guard said.

Earlier on Thursday, ship pilots stopped guiding vessels to the ports of Galveston and Texas City, Texas due to high winds.

On Thursday afternoon, the Coast Guard warned mariners that the cold front could bring gale force winds to the area.

Gale force winds are sustained winds at surface level of between 39 to 54 miles per hour (63-87 kilometers per hour), according to the U.S. National Weather Service.
