Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
300 PM EST Sat Feb 17 2018

.SYNOPSIS...A ridge will dominate the Gulf region this weekend
producing mainly gentle to moderate winds over the western Gulf,
and light to gentle winds over the eastern Gulf, with the
exception of moderate winds over the SE waters and the Straits
of Florida. Expect increasing winds and building seas by early
next week as high pressure strengthens over the western Atlantic.
A thermal trough will develop over the western Yucatan Peninsula
during each afternoon, drift west across the eastern Bay of
Campeche during the overnight hours, and then dissipate over the
southwest Gulf waters by late each morning.
