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 will approach the Texas coast tonight and move into
the NW Gulf on Tue, then pass SE across the Gulf through Wed
night. Fresh to strong SW winds and building seas are expected in
the northern Gulf ahead of the front Tue into Tue night,
followed by fresh to strong northerly winds over the NE Gulf late
Tue night into Wed. Winds and seas will diminish across much of
the Gulf Wed night through the end of the week as high pressure
builds into the eastern Gulf.

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

High pressure north of the area will support pulsing gales near
the coast of Colombia tonight, with fresh to strong trades
elsewhere across the central Caribbean through Tue. This high
pressure will weaken and move eastward Tue night into Wed,
allowing winds and seas to diminish across the basin Wed through
Fri night. The tail end of a cold front will move across the NW
Caribbean Wed night through Thu night, and cross the Windward
Passage on Fri. Northerly swell will reach the waters east of the
Leeward Islands Fri through Sat night.

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

High pressure east of the Bahamas will drift SE and weaken
through Tue. A weak cold front will move into the far northern
waters late tonight and stall early Tue, then lift N as a warm
front later Tue as strengthening low pressure moves off the SE
U.S. coast. This low will pull a strong cold front across the
waters Tue night through late this week. Expect SW gales and
building seas across the waters N of 27N ahead of the front Tue
night and Wed. Gales are also possible behind the front across
the northern waters late Wed and Wed night. Large northerly swell
will propagate southward across the region Thu through Sat night.
