Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
426 AM EST Sat Mar 2 2024

.SYNOPSIS...A cold front extends from SW Alabama to a 1015 mb low
pressure in the northwest Gulf near 27N94W. The front will stall
over the northern Gulf today as the low pressure lifts to the NE
over the area. Another low pressure area will form over north-
central Mexico Sun, allowing the front to lift northward as a warm
front over the northwest Gulf. Looking ahead, expect moderate SE
winds and moderate seas over the central and eastern Gulf Mon into
Tue, between high pressure over the Carolinas and a trough over
the southwest Gulf.
