Latest satellite derived winds and seas along with surface
observations indicate moderate to fresh winds west of the front,
and light to gentle winds east of the front. Seas are in the 2-3
ft over the western Gulf, and 1-2 ft over the eastern Gulf. The
front will reach the SE Gulf Sat where it will stall and

prevail through Mon.

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

are in the 5-6 ft range over the south central Caribbean, 1-3 ft
over the western Caribbean, and 4-5 ft over the remainder of the
Caribbean waters. Seas are in the 5-6 ft range over the tropical
N Atlc waters. The moderate to fresh trade winds will continue
to prevail over the south- central Caribbean, while gentle to
moderate trades are expected elsewhere.
