and the Southwest North Atlantic including the Bahamas

...GULF OF MEXICO...

A cold front over the NW Gulf coastal waters will slowly shift
southward over the western gulf through Wed night. Fresh to
strong northerly winds behind the front will increase to minimal
gale force in the W central and SW Gulf behind the front Tue
night through Thu night. Winds will diminish below gale force by
Fri.

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

Broad low pres over the SW Caribbean, called a Central American
Gyre, will slowly shift W into central America through Tue.
Associated heavy rainfall will spread westward across the W
Caribbean and into Central America along with the gyre. A
tropical wave will move across the eastern Caribbean today while
bringing the potential for squally weather before weakening and
becoming diffuse near the central Caribbean by mid-week.

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

A stationary front from near 30N65W to near 28N76W will lift
back NW-N through the early part of the week. High pres will
build in its wake. A new front will drop S of 31N by early Thu
with freshening winds and building seas through Fri before
