Synopsis for Lower Atchafalaya River LA to High Island TX out
60 NM including Sabine and Calcasieu Lakes and Vermilion Bay
629 AM CST Sun Jan 21 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
Moderate onshore flow will persist today, as high pressure will
be over the southeast United States and a low will move out from
the Rockies. The onshore flow will push some warmer and moist air over
the coastal waters with the possibility of patchy sea fog through
Sunday night. A cold front trailing from the low pressure system
will track across the coastal waters early Monday morning with
showers and thunderstorms. Moderate offshore flow is then expected
to develop behind the front and continue through mid- week.
