Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico

.SYNOPSIS...A stationary front will dissipate across the Straits
of Florida tonight. Fresh E winds across the northern Gulf
waters will become SE across the NW Gulf waters tonight and
continue through Sat, then become light southerly flow just
ahead of a cold front that will move off the Texas coast on
Sunday morning. The front is expected to reach from near Mobile
Alabama to the eastern Bay of Campeche early on Monday, from
near Sarasota Florida to the northern Yucatan Peninsula Tuesday
morning and from near Fort Myers Florida to the NE Yucatan
Peninsula by Tuesday evening. Strong high pressure will build
southeastward across the area in the wake of the front with
fresh to locally strong northerly winds spreading from W to E
across the forecast waters.
