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 cold front extends from northern Florida near
29N83W to 22N90W where it becomes stationary, then continues to
21N96W to 18N95W. The front will reach from SW Florida to the
Bay of Campeche tonight, then move slowly across the SE Gulf
exiting the area by late Wed. Minimal gale conditions are
forecast over the SW Gulf waters near Veracruz, Mexico this
afternoon through Thu. Strengthening high pressure in the wake
of the front will bring increasing winds and building seas
across much of the Gulf waters Wed evening into Thu, with these
conditions shifting across the E Gulf on Fri and Sat.
