Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
916 AM EST Thu Jan 21 2021

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure over the northeast Gulf will shift
southeast today to the Bahamas. Associated surface ridge will
move into the southern Gulf through Fri ahead of a cold front
moving into the northern Gulf by late Fri. The front will stall
across the northern Gulf Fri night, then dissipate through Sat
night. High pressure building north of front over the Carolinas
will support increase SE winds and building seas across the
western Gulf Sat into Sun, with strong SE winds possible in the
northwest Gulf by Sun night as low pressure forms over northern
Mexico. Winds and seas diminish across the Gulf into Mon as the
high shifts farther east and a weak cold front moves into the
coastal waters of Texas through Mon night.
