more than twice the significant wave height.

Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico

.SYNOPSIS...A stationary front extends from extreme SW Florida
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.
