Synopsis for Lower Atchafalaya River LA to High Island TX out
60 NM including Sabine and Calcasieu Lakes and Vermilion Bay
1025 AM CST Sun Feb 25 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
A cold front stalled near the coast or just offshore will allow
for isolated to scattered showers through the day, with a better
chance of showers and thunderstorms tonight and into early Monday
as the front is driven southeast by an upper level trough. In the
wake of the front, rains will come to an end with a brief period
of modest offshore winds developing. Winds turn east and then
southeast on Tuesday as this front lifts back to the north. South
winds will strengthen a bit Wednesday ahead of another cold front
forecast to cross the coastal waters Wednesday night, with a
light to modest offshore flow behind this front closing out the
week.
