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...

A trough forming over the Yucatan Peninsula will produce fresh
to strong winds each night through Thu night as it moves west-
northwest over the SW Gulf. A weak trough is forecast to move
westward across the eastern Gulf tonight through Thu, reaching
the central Gulf by Fri, with little impact in winds and seas.
Otherwise, a ridge will dominate the remainder Gulf waters
supporting gentle to moderate winds through Sun night.

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

A weak pres gradient between the Bermuda high and low pres over
northern Colombia is producing generally moderate to fresh
trade winds across the Caribbean and tropical N Atlantic, with
strong breezes N of Colombia, the Gulf of Venezuela and the Gulf
of Honduras. The Bermuda high will strengthen beginning today
increasing winds across the central and SW basin through the
weekend. Winds will pulse to minimal gale force NW of the coast
of Colombia at night through Thu night, and then again Sat
night. Expect also some increasing winds and seas E of the
Lesser Antilles Fri through Sun.

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

A trough NE of the Bahamas will move westward through Thu, likely
reaching Florida by Fri. The pres gradient on the SW side of the
Bermuda high will remain weak, producing light to gentle winds
in the area today. The Bermuda high will strengthen tonight through
Sun night, and trade winds will increase to moderate E of the
Bahamas, and to a fresh breeze across the Old Bahama Channel,
and N of Hispaniola, including approach to the Windward Passage.
