Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
518 PM EDT Sat May 21 2022

.SYNOPSIS...Fresh to strong southeast winds along with
occasionally rough seas will prevail from the south-central Gulf
to the northwest Gulf into Sun between high pressure over the
western Atlantic and broad low pressure over southern Mexico and
northern Central America. Winds and seas will diminish Sun into
Mon as the low pressure weakens, except for pulses off fresh to
strong winds off the north coast of the Yucatan Peninsula,
mainly at night. Looking ahead, a ridge will build from
westward from the western Atlantic across the northern Gulf
through mid-week. The associated gradient between the ridge and
low pressure with a cold front west of the area will support
fresh southeast return flow over the western Gulf through late
Wed. The cold front is expected to move into the western Gulf
on Thu followed by gentle to moderate north to northeast winds.

A large area of numerous thunderstorms, with strong to near
gale-force wind gusts along with frequent lightning is over the
NE Gulf. This activity is likely to continue through late tonight,
while it gradually shifts to the southwest. Otherwise, hazy
conditions persist over some areas of the western Gulf due to
agricultural fires in southern Mexico.
