.SYNOPSIS...A ridge will continue to dominate the Gulf waters

Florida Big Bend to near Veracruz, Mexico by Thu night. Strong
northerly winds and building seas are expected in the wake of
the front over the western Gulf. Gale conditions are forecast
over the west-central and SW Gulf Thu through Fri. Then, the
front is forecast to move slowly on Fri, and a low pressure may
develop along the frontal boundary over the NE Gulf on Sat. The
