Synopsis for Lower Atchafalaya River LA to High Island TX out
60 NM including Sabine and Calcasieu Lakes and Vermilion Bay
928 AM CST Thu Feb 22 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
A cold front has stalled across southeast Texas and extends north
northeast into central Louisiana this morning. This feature,
along with good upper support, will maintain scattered showers
and thunderstorms through the day, especially west of Cameron.
The front will retreat later today with rain chances then
diminishing. With a long fetch of south to southeast winds, tides
 are running about a foot above normal and this will continue
through the week, while seas will remain somewhat elevated
offshore. Dense fog development remains possible over the near
shore waters as warm moist air overrides the cooler shelf waters.
