and Tropical North Atlantic from 07N to 19N between 55W and 64W

...GULF OF MEXICO...

A warm front is in the coastal waters of Texas, from the coast
of the Deep South of Texas beyond SW Louisiana, and inland. The
warm front will move into the Texas coastal plains later today.
A cold front will move off the Texas coast on Saturday, reach
from the western Florida Panhandle to Tampico Mexico by Sunday
morning, before stalling and weakening from the Florida Keys to
the SW Gulf of Mexico on Monday. The front will dissipate on
Tuesday, as it moves northward as a warm front.

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

High pressure north of the region will maintain fresh to strong
trade winds in mainly the central Caribbean Sea, and north of
Honduras during the next several days. Gale force winds will
pulse at night, and into the early morning near the coast of
Colombia, through Tuesday. Long period north to northeast swell
will propagate through the Atlantic Ocean waters east of the
Lesser Antilles beginning tonight, before dissipating from
Sunday through Tuesday night.

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

A ridge will fluctuate between 27N and 29N through Saturday,
then shift southward ahead of a cold front moving off the coast
of northeast Florida by late Sunday. The front will reach from
Bermuda to the Florida Keys by Monday afternoon, before
stalling and weakening along roughly 26N through Tuesday.
