Marine Weather HF Voice Broadcast for the Gulf of Mexico

Seas given as significant wave height, which is the average
height of the highest 1/3 of the waves. Individual waves may be
more than twice the significant wave height.

Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico

.SYNOPSIS...A stationary front extends from Fl Panhandle near
30N85.5W to 1012 mb low near 26N87W. A cold front extends from
the 1012 mb low near 26N87W, to 24N94W and 18.5N95W, to inland
Mexico near 22N100W. The low will track east-northeastward
slowly, to the far eastern Gulf waters through early Friday,
before moving inland central Florida Friday afternoon, pushing
the cold front to the far SE waters by Saturday. A tight
pressure gradient behind the front will bring gale-force
conditions to much of the western waters for rest of today,
except to continue in the far SW waters into early Thursday.
High pressure will build across the area in the wake of the
front through Sunday, allowing for winds and seas to decrease.
