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 remains in control across the basin. Fresh
southerly return flow will prevail over the western Gulf through
tonight ahead of the next cold front forecast to reach the
northern Gulf late Wed, then stall and lift northward Thu.
Looking ahead, the next cold front is expected to move across
the Gulf waters over the weekend.

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

A cold front across the western Atlantic will continue moving E
across the area while weakening. High pressure will build in the
wake of the front. As the ridge builds, winds and seas across
the south-central Caribbean including the Windward Passage will
become fresh to strong this afternoon through Thu. The NE winds
will return to moderate into the weekend as ridge prevails over
the region.

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

A gale warning is in effect for an area within 90 nm east of a
1008 mb surface low centered near 26N62W. A surface trough
extends from 30N60W to the low to 18N67W. The gale force winds
will follow the low/trough as it moves NE through today. The
disturbance is expected to move northeastward, and there is a
slight chance that it could acquire some subtropical
characteristics before it merges with a cold front this
afternoon. High pressure will build in the wake of the front.
