Marine Weather Discussion for the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea,
and Tropical North Atlantic from 07N to 19N between 55W and 64W
and the Southwest North Atlantic including the Bahamas

...GULF OF MEXICO...

An elongated middle level low, upper level diffluent flow and
abundant moisture in the western Gulf support numerous to
scattered heavy showers and thunderstorms. A strong pressure
gradient between this area of low pressure and a ridge over the
E Gulf support fresh to near gale force over Louisiana adjacent
waters continuing through early Mon morning. Frequent gusts to
gale force winds are expected over the coast of Louisiana.
Otherwise, fresh to strong southeast winds over much of the
western sections of the gulf will continue through Thu.

...CARIBBEAN SEA AND TROPICAL N ATLANTIC FROM 07N TO 19N BETWEEN
55W AND 64W...

A tropical wave near 71W will move across the central Caribbean
today and Mon, and over western Caribbean waters Tue through
Thu. A second tropical wave will enter the E basin on Tue
morning and move over central waters Wed night. Strong trades in
the south-central Caribbean will gradually diminish through Mon
morning. Strong winds will resume Mon evening N of the Gulf of
Venezuela but rapidly diminish early on Tue. Winds will pulse to
strong in the Gulf of Honduras tonight through Tue night.

...SW N ATLANTIC INCLUDING THE BAHAMAS...

A cold front will continue to move southward east of the Bahamas
through Mon afternoon when it is forecast to stall before
dissipating early on Wed. Weak high pressure will build
thereafter.
