Marine Weather Discussion

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 broad surface low over the Yucatan peninsula is expected to
intensify as it moves slowly northward through Sun. Strong
winds and building seas are likely east of the low center. Most
of the model guidance takes the tropical low into the NE Gulf
between New Orleans and Apalachicola. Marine grids are primarily
based on a blend of the EC model.

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

High pressure in the central Atlantic will maintain fresh to
strong trade winds in the Caribbean into Sat, with the strongest
winds along the coast of Colombia. A broad surface low over the
Yucatan peninsula will drift northward into the Gulf of Mexico
through Fri. Fresh to locally strong SE winds and 7-8 ft seas are
expected the NW Caribbean Fri and Sat as this low develops.

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

Moderate to fresh trade winds are expected south of 27N through
Sat. An area of low pressure developing in the Gulf of Mexico
will increase SE winds west of 77W this weekend. Marine grids are
primarily based on a blend of the EC model, which keeps the low
much further west in the Gulf than the GFS track into Florida.
