60 NM including Sabine and Calcasieu Lakes and Vermilion Bay
1010 AM CDT Sun Jul 15 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure stretching west across the central Gulf of Mexico
will result in a continued light to modest west to southwest 
flow and low seas through the period. Minimal rain chances are
forecast the next few days as high pressure aloft meanders west
across the region, with better rain chances expected by mid week
as an upper trof digs into the northern Gulf Coast.
