Coastal Waters Forecasts...

.SYNOPSIS...A cold front extends from Apalachee Bay to
24N90W to 25N86W where it becomes stationary to inland near
Tampico. The cold front will quickly reach the far SE waters
early on Wednesday, and move E of the area during Wednesday
afternoon. High pressure building in behind the front will usher
in fresh to strong northerly winds over the area from early on
Tuesday through Wednesday morning. These Winds will diminish
through Thursday afternoon as the high pressure shifts to the NE
Gulf. The high pressure will weaken on Friday as another cold
front moves across eastern Texas, and into the NW Gulf on Friday
night. The front will then reach from the NE Gulf to near 25N90W
and the eastern Bay of Campeche by late on Saturday followed by
strong high pressure to once again bring another round of strong
northerly flow across much of the basin, with northerly winds
expected to reach gale force in the far SW Gulf portion.
