Marine Weather Discussion for the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea,
and Tropical North Atlantic from 07N to 19N between 55W and 64W
and the Southwest North Atlantic including the Bahamas

...GULF OF MEXICO...

A weak cold front across the Texas coastal waters will stall
this morning before moving back inland this afternoon. Strong
high pressure across the W Atlc 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 Texas coastal waters early
Sun  and stall there through Sun before moving SE and reaching
FL Panhandle to Veracruz Mexico Mon afternoon.

...CARIBBEAN SEA AND TROPICAL N ATLANTIC FROM 07N TO 19N BETWEEN
55W AND 64W...

Strong high pres across the NW Atlc will dominate the region as
it settles across the Bermuda area through the end of the week.
Fresh to strong tradewinds will prevail across the Caribbean and
Tropical N Atlc waters through Thu, with nocturnal winds pulsing
to gale force winds off of Colombia. High pres will weaken
through the weekend into early next week, leading to diminishing
winds and seas.

...SW N ATLANTIC INCLUDING THE BAHAMAS...

W Atlc ridge will persist along 33N today then drift  SW and
slowly weaken through the weekend. Gentle to moderate winds will
prevail N of 25N with fresh to strong winds S of 25N through
Thu. NNE swell will move through waters E of 65W through Fri
night. A weak cold front may move off the NE Florida coast early
 next week.
