Synopsis for Lower Atchafalaya River LA to High Island TX out
60 NM including Sabine and Calcasieu Lakes and Vermilion Bay
352 AM CDT Thu May 24 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
Weak surface high pressure extending west across the northern
Gulf coast states will maintain a generally light southeast to
east flow and low seas over the next couple of days. Winds are
expected to turn more northeasterly Saturday into Sunday as an
area of low pressure lifts north across the central Gulf of
Mexico and moves toward the north central Gulf coast. The
combination of daytime heating and the proximity of the low will
result in  scattered shower and thunderstorm development each day
through the weekend.
