Coastal Waters Forecasts...

.SYNOPSIS...A strong cold front has exited the area, and is now
over the northwestern Caribbean Sea from west-central Cuba to
northern Belize. Strong winds and high seas across most of the
central and eastern gulf will slowly subside through early Mon.
Strong high pressure in the wake of the front covers the entire
basin. The high pressure will shift eastward in as low pressure
deepens over the southern Plains allowing for strong southeast
to south return flow to develop in the western Gulf of Mexico by
Tue morning. The strong return flow will expand to the eastern
Gulf of Mexico by Tue night. Another strong cold front is
expected to move across the NW Gulf of Mexico by Wed morning,
with the possibility of gale force northerly winds behind it
over the far western Gulf and near the coast of Mexico. This
front will reach from near the NE Gulf to the Yucatan Peninsula
early Thu and weaken as it exits the SE Gulf Thu night followed
by fresh to strong northerly winds.
