will maintain a ridge extending W across the Gulf coast states
to produce fresh return flow across most of the basin, except
strong winds through the Straits of Florida and across central
portion of the Gulf. A weak cold front will drift into the far
NW waters Sat night and stall there through the remainder of the
weekend into early next week.
