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...

High pressure prevails over the forecast waters. Latest
satellite derived winds and seas along with ship, buoy, and CMAN
data depict light to gentle winds over the northeast Gulf, and
gentle to moderate winds elsewhere. Seas are in the 1-2 ft range
over the northeast Gulf, 4-5 ft over the northwest Gulf, and 2-4
ft elsewhere. A thermal trough will develop late each afternoon
over the Yucatan Peninsula. The trough will shift westward across
the southwestern Gulf waters during the overnight hours and
dissipate over this area each morning. High pressure will prevail
elsewhere over the Gulf waters through Wed night.

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

Latest satellite derived winds and seas along with ship, buoy,
and CMAN data depict moderate to fresh trade winds over the
central Caribbean, with gentle to moderate trade winds over the
remainder of the Caribbean as well as the tropical north
Atlantic forecast zones. Seas are in the 5-8 ft range over the
central Caribbean, 3-5 ft over the eastern Caribbean, 5-7 ft over
the western Caribbean, and 5-6 ft over the tropical north
Atlantic waters. Winds and seas across the forecast waters will
continue to decrease this weekend. High pressure will build back
north of the area early next week, once again tightening the
pressure gradient and increasing winds and seas by midweek.

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

A weakening cold front extends from near Bermuda to the northern
Bahamas. Latest satellite derived winds and seas along with
ship, buoy, and CMAN data depict gentle to moderate winds over
the far southern waters while light to gentle winds prevail
elsewhere. Seas are in the 2-4 ft range outside the Bahamas and
1-3 ft west of the Bahamas. The front will dissipate by Sunday.
High pressure will then build back across the area the remainder
of the weekend into early next week then prevail through the
remainder of the forecast period.
