Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
355 AM EST Mon Feb 19 2018

.SYNOPSIS...Strong high pres shifting slowly E into the NW Atlc
this morning extends SW to a stalled cold front across the SE
U.S. The high will gradually build S and SW across the W Atlc and
Caribbean and modestly across the Gulf today through Wed to
produce fresh return flow across the basin, except strong winds
through the Straits of Florida and across central portions of the
Gulf, where the Yucatan thermal trough will enhance winds each
evening.
