Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
426 PM EDT Tue May 21 2019

.SYNOPSIS...Strong low pres across the Central Plains will weaken
during the next couple of days and allow strong SE to S winds to
gradually diminish through Fri. Surface troughs moving W from the
Yucatan will generate strong winds over the bay of Campeche each
night through Sun night. Smoke from fires across southern Mexico
will maintain hazy skies and reduce visibilities over the western
Gulf and the Bay of Campeche the next several days.
