NAVTEX Marine Forecast
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami, FL
1019 PM EDT Wed Oct 18 2017

...Please refer to Coastal Waters Forecasts (CWF) available
through NOAA Weather Radio and other means for detailed
Coastal Waters Forecasts...

.SYNOPSIS...A stationary front extends from the upper
FLorida Keys to 26N90W where it begins to dissipate to the
central Bay of Campeche. The frontal portion E of 90W will begin
to dissipate tonight through Thursday morning. Strong NW flow
along the coast of Veracruz will diminish by late tonight. A
tight pressure gradient over the NE Gulf between the front and
high pressure over the northern waters will allow for fresh to
strong NE winds to exist over those waters through late early
Thursday, with mainly NE to E fresh winds continuing into
Saturday. The next cold front is expected to move into NW Gulf
on Sunday afternoon, and reach from near the mouth of the
Mississippi river to the eastern Bay of Campeche by Monday
night. Fresh to strong northerly flow will follow in the wake of
the front.
