Southeast Gulf of Mexico

.SYNOPSIS...A cold front extends from NE Florida to Sarasota,
Florida to 23N89W to Veracruz, Mexico. The cold front will reach
from near Naples to the eastern Bay of Campeche this evening,
and from the Straits of Florida and to the southeast Gulf by Wed
morning while it will remain nearly stationary over the eastern
Bay of Campeche. The front is forecast to move southeast of the
area on Wed. Weak high pres will build across the area behind
the front. Another weak cold front is expected to move to just
offshore the Texas coast Wed night and across the NW Gulf Thu
followed by gentle to moderate northerly flow. This next cold
front is expected to slow down as it reaches the eastern gulf
Fri and Fri night, then move east of the area Sat followed by
weak high pres.

Within 200 nm east of the coast of Florida

.SYNOPSIS...A stationary front enters the area at 27N65W, and
continues to near 25N73W. Numerous showers and thunderstorms,
with strong gusty winds are occurring over the NW Bahamas and
northeastward from there. A very tight pressure gradient between
broad low pressure over the southeastern United States and strong
high pressure over the western Atlantic is producing strong to
near gale force east to southeast winds over the northern waters
west of 70W. These wind conditions will gradually diminish through
Wed while shifting northeast of the area. The broad low will
track northeastward toward the mid-Atlantic coast through Wed
night. It will push a weak cold front across the northwest portion
of the area today and tonight, then across the north-central
waters Wed through Thu before stalling there Thu night. Another
weak cold front will move over the far northwest portion Fri and
Sat, and over the north-central waters Sat night.
