.SYNOPSIS FOR PASCAGOULA TO ATCHAFALAYA RIVER OUT 60 NM...
A cold front will sweep through the waters tonight, and winds will
quickly shift to the northwest and increase in speed to 25 to 30
knots over all of the waters. These high winds will also push seas to
between 6 and 10 feet over the open Gulf waters and 3 to 6 feet in
the sounds and lakes. These rough conditions will last through Monday
morning before improving as high pressure briefly settles in.
However, another low pressure system deepening over the central Gulf
on Tuesday through Friday will increase easterly flow to near 20
knots. Seas will once again turn rough as the combination of wind
waves and swell pushes seas to around 7 to 10 feet in the open Gulf
