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 cold front crosses the Gulf from Panama City Beach Florida to
near Tampico, MX. Numerous showers and scattered thunderstorms
are occurring N of 20N and S of the front W of 93W. The front
will move SE and reach from near Tampa, FL to just N of the
Yucatan Peninsula to the western Bay of Campeche early Wed,
where it will stall and weaken through early Thu. Strong NE
winds behind the front will continue through Wed afternoon.
Winds will gradually veer southeast across the basin Thu in
advance of next cold front, which is expected to reach the Texas
coast Fri morning. Gale force NW to N winds are expected over
the western Gulf behind this front Fri through Sat afternoon.

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

A weak Bermuda high will promote moderate to fresh trade winds
across most of the basin through Fri night. An active tropical
wave along 87W will move W into Central America by tonight. High
pressure N of the basin will strengthen after another tropical
wave moves across the central Caribbean Sat, causing trade winds
to freshen across central portions. No tropical cyclone activity
is expected over the region for at least the next several days.

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

A nearly stationary front curving from 31N66W to 27N72W to
30N76W will dissipate by Wed morning. The next cold front will
move off the coast of N Florida this evening, then become
stationary over central Florida and north of the Bahamas by Thu,
gradually dissipating along 27N by Fri night. High pressure
will build from the middle Atlantic coast over the western Atlc
in the wake of this front.
