Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
1006 PM EST Fri Feb 15 2019

.SYNOPSIS...A ridge will dominate the Gulf waters through early
Sun, maintaining moderate to locally fresh SE return flow over
the western Gulf. The next cold front will reach the NW Gulf of
Mexico Sun and extend from the Florida Panhandle to near Tampico,
Mexico by early Mon as broad low pres forms off Veracruz in the
SW Gulf through Mon. The front will stall across the northern
Gulf waters through Tue morning, then lift NW across the northern
Gulf by late Tue as the low moves inland over NE Mexico and
dissipates. The front will then attempt to move again over the NW
Gulf by Wed, probably reaching from SE Louisiana to near Tampico,
Mexico by Wed night.
