...STRONG AND GUSTY SOUTH WINDS EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON...

and an area of low pressure and associated cold front moving
through the Southern Plains will result in strong south winds
for the remainder of this afternoon with sustained winds between
20 and 25 mph. In addition, a belt of strong winds within a few
thousand feet of the surface will result in gusts occasionally
over 35 mph, especially over the coastal counties and parishes.
Winds are expected to subside early this evening, but could remain
elevated near the immediate coast through mid evening.
