   GMZ001-220915-  Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico  530 PM EDT Sat May 21 2022      .SYNOPSIS...Fresh to strong southeast winds along with  occasionally rough seas will prevail from the south-central Gulf  to the northwest Gulf into Sun between high pressure over the  western Atlantic and broad low pressure over southern Mexico and  northern Central America. Winds and seas will diminish Sun into  Mon as the low pressure weakens, except for pulses off fresh to  strong winds off the north coast of the Yucatan Peninsula,  mainly at night. Looking ahead, a ridge will build from  westward from the western Atlantic across the northern Gulf  through mid-week. The associated gradient between the ridge and  low pressure with a cold front west of the area will support  fresh southeast return flow over the western Gulf through late  Wed. The cold front is expected to move into the western Gulf  on Thu followed by gentle to moderate north to northeast winds.    A large area of numerous thunderstorms, with strong to  occasional gale-force wind gusts along with frequent lightning  is over the NE Gulf. This activity is likely to continue through  late tonight, while it gradually shifts to the southwest.  Otherwise, hazy conditions persist over some areas of the  western Gulf due to agricultural fires in southern Mexico.    $$
