Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
1042 AM EST Sun Jan 26 2020

.SYNOPSIS...Low pressure along the coast of Texas will move
eastward through tonight across into the northern central Gulf,
then southeast into south Florida. A trailing frontal boundary
will follow, and stall from southwest Florida to the south central
Gulf by early Tue, before dissipating late Tue. The pattern will
repeat by mid week as a second low pressure and associated cold
front moves off Texas through the north central Gulf, and through
south Florida by late Wed. Looking ahead, the second front will
stall and dissipate over the southeast Gulf by late Thu, ahead of
a third, weaker front stalling over the northeast Gulf.
