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...

Low pressure along the coast of Texas will move eastward through
tonight across into the northern central Gulf, then southeast
into south Florida. A trailing frontal boundary will follow, and
stall from southwest Florida to the south central Gulf by early
Tue, before dissipating late Tue. The pattern will repeat by mid
week as a second low pressure and associated cold front moves
off Texas through the north central Gulf, and through south
Florida by late Wed. Looking ahead, the second front will stall
and dissipate over the southeast Gulf by late Thu, ahead of a
third, weaker front stalling over the northeast Gulf.

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

Relatively weak high pressure across the region will maintain
rather quiet conditions over the forecast waters allowing for
generally gentle to moderate winds, except for fresh winds near
the coast of Colombia during the afternoons and night time hours
through Wed, increasing to fresh to strong speeds on Thu night.

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

A weak front extending from near 31N70W to the central Bahamas
and central Cuba will drift east and dissipate through Mon. A
series of cold fronts will move across the area during the
upcoming week. Expect scattered showers and a few thunderstorms
over the waters near the Bahamas and S Florida Mon through Tue
night, and possibly later in the week. Multiple sets of
northerly swell will propagate through the NE portion of the
basin during this upcoming week, with the most significant one
expected Tue into early Wed.
