 Hazardous Weather Outlook
   GMZ400-231515-  Synopsis for Lower Atchafalaya River LA to High Island TX out  60 NM including Sabine and Calcasieu Lakes and Vermilion Bay  915 PM CDT Tue Aug 22 2017      .SYNOPSIS...  Light southeast winds and low seas will continue through  Wednesday as surface high pressure ridges west across the Gulf  States. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected each  afternoon. The high is forecast to breakdown late Wednesday as  the region is squeezed between an approaching cold front to the  north and what is likely to be a regenerated Harvey over the  Southern Gulf of Mexico. Elevated winds and seas are expected to  begin affecting the coastal waters on Friday, and continue  through the weekend. The magnitude of these elevated winds and  seas, and their duration, will depend on the eventual track and  strength of the system. At this time, there is a broad consensus  for the tropical cyclone to come ashore the lower to middle  Texas coast late Friday, then subsequently slow down over South  Central Texas over the weekend before turning eastward early next  week. Should this come to fruition, a prolonged period of  rainfall, gusty onshore flow, and rough seas will result.    $$
