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 weakening stationary front extends from Fort Myers
west to near 27N90W. Fresh to locally strong easterly flow
continues north of the front over the NE Gulf. The stationary
front will lift back to the north as a warm front early this
morning as a cold front reaches the Texas coast. The cold front
will be preceded by scattered showers and thunderstorms, some of
which can produce strong gusty winds. It will reach from the
Mississippi Delta to the Bay of Campeche tonight, from the
Florida Big Bend to the Yucatan Peninsula on Mon night, then slow
somewhat on Tue passing across the Straits of Florida Tue night.
The front will be followed by gentle to moderate NW winds and
relatively low seas.

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

Atlantic high pressure will maintain fresh to locally strong
trades across the south-central Caribbean and along the southern
coast of Hispaniola through early this afternoon. Strong
nocturnal trades are then expected to resume tonight along the
north coast of the South America. A weakening cold front will
move southeastward across the Yucatan Basin on Tue night, and
wash out across the NW Caribbean by Thu.

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

Remnants of a stationary front extending southwest from 29N65W
to central Florida will lift northward today with near gale
force southeast flow developing across the forecast waters north
of the Bahamas on Mon and Mon night in association with a
surface low that will move eastward across the southeastern
United States. Presently, scattered showers and thunderstorms are
rapidly developing along and near the stationary front west of
about 72W as a mid to upper level trough over the western
Atlantic provides additional instability in the vicinity of the
stationary frontal boundary. This activity is expected to
continue through this afternoon, before it lifts to the northwest
part of the area tonight through Mon in response to a warm
frontal boundary that develops there ahead of a Gulf of Mexico
cold front.

The aforementioned surface low will track northeastward along
the Georgia and South Carolina coasts on Tue, and drag the Gulf
of Mexico cold front that is presently approaching the Texas
coast, in addition to another weak cold front, across the
northwest waters during the middle of next week.
