Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
421 AM EDT Wed Apr 25 2018

.SYNOPSIS...A weak cold front extends from the Florida Keys
to 23N88W, where it becomes stationary to the eastern Bay of
Campeche and to inland Mexico at 18N94W. The cold front portion
will move to along NW Cuba and the Yucatan basin this morning, and
become diffuse tonight. Another weak cold front will reach the
Texas coast tonight, move across the northwest and north-central
waters Thu and Thu night and across the eastern gulf late Thu
night through Fri night as it slows down. This front will exit the
southeast gulf on Sat followed by weak high pressure that will
become centered over the northwest gulf. The high pressure will
slide eastward to the far north-central gulf by Sun night.
