Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
1035 PM EDT Sun May 19 2024

.SYNOPSIS...A cold front extends across the northern Florida
Peninsula. Ahead of it, scattered moderate convection and gusty
moderate winds are noted S of 26N and E of 88W. This activity is
supported by a mid to upper-level trough that extends from the
southeastern U.S. coast southwestward to the south-central Gulf.
This weather will continue to shift E to SE across the eastern
Gulf, reaching the vicinity of the Florida Keys Mon night and the
Straits of Florida Tue. Gusty winds along with rough seas will
prevail near the convection. Moderate to fresh SE winds prevail
elsewhere, with slight seas. Hazy conditions due to agricultural
fires in Mexico continue across most of the western Gulf and Bay
of Campeche.
