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

.A tight gradient between surface high pressure east of Florida
and an area of low pressure and associated cold front moving
through the Southern Plains will result in increasing south winds
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 30 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.
