Synopsis for Lower Atchafalaya River LA to High Island TX out
60 NM including Sabine and Calcasieu Lakes and Vermilion Bay
351 PM CDT Tue Oct 16 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will continue
tonight as a stalled cold front begins to slowly move south. A
modest offshore flow is expected to the north of the front, while
light east to southeast winds will continue to the south and east
of it. The front will be driven further offshore Wednesday and
Wednesday night by high pressure dropping from the Plains into
the Mid Mississippi River Valley, which will result in increasing
north winds across all of the coastal waters. Winds will relax on
Friday ahead of another cold front forecast to bring another round
of strong north winds Saturday night into Sunday.
