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

.SYNOPSIS...
A front will stall north of the coastal waters today, then linger
inland into the weekend, allowing for enhanced rain chances for
the next several days. This will also mean an elevated southerly
flow will continue through the end of the week. With warm moist
air moving over relatively cooler Gulf shelf waters, there will
be the potential for sea fog through Thursday morning over the
near  shore waters. The front will finally get shoved through the
coastal waters late in the weekend, allowing for a brief round of
easterly to possibly northeasterly winds for early next week.
