Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
406 PM EDT Tue Apr 7 2020

.SYNOPSIS...A ridge will dominate the Gulf waters over the next
few days, with a weak high pressure cell developing over the SE
Gulf. This system will move toward western Cuba on Thu, ahead of
the next cold front forecast to reach the northern Gulf Thu night
into Fri. The front will stall and weaken over the northern or
central waters Fri night. Fresh to locally strong NE to E winds
will follow the front. Southerly winds will increase across the
region during the upcoming weekend. Smoke from agricultural
fires in southern Mexico may reduce visibilities over the SW Gulf
and Bay of Campeche.
