Synopsis for Lower Atchafalaya River LA to High Island TX out
60 NM including Sabine and Calcasieu Lakes and Vermilion Bay
905 PM CST Wed Nov 22 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
Gusty north winds are likely to increase a bit just after dark,
but are then forecast to gradually decrease along with seas
generally from northwest to southeast during the overnight hours
and  through Thursday and into Thursday night as surface high
pressure  settles into the region. A light onshore flow is
expected to  develop late Friday as this high shifts off toward
the east and a  reinforcing cold front approaches the area, with
an offshore flow  developing as this front pushes through late
Saturday and  continuing on Sunday.
